West Ham and Fiorentina Face UEFA Charges Following Europa Conference League Final
UEFA has charged West Ham and Fiorentina following the Europa Conference League final. The charges stem from the behaviour of sections of their supporters during the match, which saw West Ham emerge victorious after a late goal from Jarrod Bowen.
West Ham has been charged with an invasion of the field of play and the behaviour of their supporters, who threw several plastic cups at Fiorentina captain Cristiano Biraghi. The incident resulted in Biraghi sustaining a cut to his head. West Ham has condemned the actions of the supporters involved.
Fiorentina, on the other hand, has been charged with the lighting of fireworks and the throwing of objects. The charges come after a dramatic game both on and off the field.
UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) will decide on the matter in due course. The charges highlight the need for improved security and crowd control measures during high-profile matches.
