England have been issued with a two-game stadium suspension and a €100,000 ($116,000) fine by UEFA after crowd trouble marred July’s Euro 2020 final against Italy at Wembley.

“Order the English Football Association to play its next two (2) UEFA competition matches as host association behind closed doors, the second of which is suspended for a probationary period of two years from the date of the present decision, for the lack of order and discipline inside and around the stadium,” the CEDB said in a statement.

“A punishment of €100,000 [for] the English Football Association [for] the lack of order and discipline within and around the stadium, for the invasion of the field of play, for hurling items, and for disruptions during the national anthems,” the statement said.

After the draw for the 2022-23 Nations League is made on Dec. 16, England will learn which match will be played behind closed doors.

Due to coronavirus limitations, capacity was cut from 90,000 to 60,000 for the Euro 2020 final, and fans who sensed an opportunity to see the final clashed with stewards and police officers while entrances were forced open.

There were multiple reports of fans with tickets arriving to find people already occupying their seats and at kick-off, there were hundreds of supporters blocking gangways and stairways.
