Association fined €25,000 for fans' improper conduct

 

The German Football Association has been fined €25,000 for the improper conduct of their supporters during the 2-1 Group B defeat of Denmark on June 17th, Uefa said yesterday. Spectators set off fireworks, chanted inappropriately and displayed offensive banners, one of which was “neo-Nazi”, according to the Football Against Racism in Europe (Fare) protest group.

Germany, with four wins from four games so far and who are in semi-final action against Italy at Warsaw’s National Stadium on Thursday, can appeal but must do so within 24 hours. The association has already been fined €10,000 for the conduct of fans to Portugal players during their June 9th match.
