Heavy fine for Croatian Football Federation

UEFA's Control and Disciplinary Body has fined the Croatian Football Federation €80,000 following incidents at the UEFA EURO 2012 qualifier against Georgia earlier this month.

The Croatian Football Federation (HNS) has been fined €80,000 by UEFA's Control and Disciplinary Body in the wake of incidents at the UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying Group F match against Georgia in Split on 3 June.

The charges brought against the HNS concerned crowd disturbances, a pitch invasion, the showing of illicit banners, the setting off and throwing of fireworks, violation of kit regulations (manufacturer's logo on the goalkeeper's gloves) and insufficient organisation. An appeal must be made within three days of the dispatch of the reasoned decision.

In February, UEFA President Michel Platini met the president of the Republic of Croatia, Ivo Josipović, to discuss issues relating to violence and security around matches involving Croatian teams.
