Euro 2020 final: Uefa opens disciplinary proceedings into events at Wembley

Last update on.From section England Watch: A crowd breaks through the Wembley Stadium entry before the final Uefa has initiated disciplinary proceedings against Uefa for security breaches at the Euro 2020 final in Wembley. A Uefa ethics inspector and disciplinary inspector opened an investigation into the matter last month. As they tried to get through the gates of the match last month, fans fought police and stewards. Uefa stated that the FA was being investigated for "a lack in order or discipline from its supporters". The European Football's governing body has stated that the English FA could be in breach of Article 16 of its disciplinary regulations, which pertains to Uefa competition matches. The FA was facing numerous charges in July for invasion of the field, throwing objects by supporters, disturbances during national anthem, and lighting of fireworks by fan. However, the most recent proceedings are related to "any other absence of order or discipline observed within or around the stadium". Mark Bullingham, chief executive of FA, apologized to the legitimate fans and stated that the security team had "never witnessed anything like it". Police released 15 images last week of those wanted by police in connection to the violence and disorder at Wembley. Seven individuals from an earlier Met Police appeal were arrested on suspicion for grievous bodily injury, violent disorder and theft. After extra time, England lost in the final to Italy through a penalty shootout.
