West Ham ‘Reluctantly’ Accept UEFA Ban On Away Fans For Next Europa League Game

Posted by

Following crowd disturbances at their Europa League match in Genk earlier this month, West Ham has “reluctantly accepted” UEFA punishment.

After being barred from selling tickets for their next European away fixture and fined 34,500 euros (£29,260), the Hammers requested complete written reasons from UEFA on Monday.

Evidence of a “small number” of ticketless Hammers fans causing disturbances after illegally entering the stadium for the 2-2 draw in Belgium has since been submitted to the Premier League club.

West Ham said in a statement on Wednesday: “West Ham United can confirm that the club has reluctantly accepted sanctions from UEFA in relation to our Europa League Group H away fixture against KRC Genk on Thursday, November 4.
