The European governing body has a zero tolerance policy towards racism and discrimination on the pitch and in the stands. All forms of racist behaviour are considered serious offences against the disciplinary regulations and are punished with the most severe sanctions. Following the entry into force of the new disciplinary regulations on 1 June 2013, the fight against racist conduct has been stepped up a level – resulting in more severe sanctions to deter any such behaviour.

PZPN, RFS face UEFA proceedings

Disciplinary proceedings have been opened against the Polish Football Association and Football Union of Russia following last night's UEFA EURO 2012 Group A match in Warsaw.

UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Polish Football Association (PZPN) for the setting off of fireworks by spectators at last night's UEFA EURO 2012 Group A match against Russia in Warsaw.

Disciplinary proceedings have also been opened against the Football Union of Russia (RFS) for the setting off and throwing of fireworks, displaying illicit banners and the invasion of the pitch by a supporter.

However, last night's incidents do not have any impact on the probation period for the sanction imposed on the RFS following the incidents at their first match against the Czech Republic in Wroclaw. This means the six-point deduction is still currently suspended.

The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body will deal with both cases on 17 June.
