UEFA cuts Hungary fan ban to one match

Hungary fans

November 19 – Hungary’s punishment for offensive fan misconduct during Euros 2020 has been reduced by UEFA.

The two-game stadium closure in June for the Nations League was halved to one home game without fans.

The UEFA verdict came despite more incidents of racist abuse and violence by Hungary fans in World Cup qualifying games this year which falls under FIFA’s jurisdiction

At Euro 2020, fans racially abused opposing players and held up anti-gay banners at games played in Budapest and Munich.
