The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) announced today its decision after incidents that occurred during the European Qualifier group F match between Romania and Hungary (1-1), which was played on 11 October in Bucarest.   Romanian Football Federation (FRF) Incidents: Setting off/throwing of fireworks and missiles - Art. 16 (2) UEFA Disciplinary Regulations; Use of laser pointer - Art. 16 (2) DR; Crowd disturbances - Art. 16 (2) DR; Illicit banners – art. 16 DR Sanctions: The CEDB has ordered the partial closure of the stadium chosen by the FRF (i.e. Arena Națională)  during the next (1) UEFA competition match in which the Romania would play as the host association, and, in particular, the sector 122 of that stadium. The FRF has also been fined €32,000.   Hungarian Football Federation (MLSZ) Incidents: Racist behaviour - Art. 14 DR; Setting off/throwing of fireworks and missiles - Art. 16 (2) DR; Crowd disturbance (seats destroyed and thrown) - Art. 16 (2) DR Sanctions: The CEDB has ordered the partial closure of the stadium chosen by the MLSZ (i.e. Flórián Albert Stadion) during the next (1) UEFA competition match in which Hungary would play as the host association. The closed sector(s) should at least comprehend 2,500 seats. The MLSZ has also been fined €30,000. Finally, the MLSZ has been ordered to contact the FRF within 30 days for the settlement of the damages caused by its supporters. The fight against racism is a high priority for UEFA. The European governing body has a zero-tolerance policy towards racism and discrimination on the field 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 new disciplinary regulations in June 2013, the fight against racist conduct has been stepped up a level – resulting in stricter penalties to deter any such behaviour.   These decisions are open to appeal.
