Bulgaria handed two-match stadium ban and fined over fan racism towards England players

Read Time33Seconds

Bulgaria have been hit with a two-match stadium ban and £64,650 fine for the racist behaviour of their fans during the European Qualifier against England.

One of those stadium closures is suspended for two years, and the Bulgarian Football Union (BFU) has also been fined £8,600 (€10,000) for causing a disturbance during a national anthem and must display a UEFA ‘no to racism’ banner at their next home game.

The FA say they “acknowledge” UEFA’s ruling but did not pass judgement on its severity, stressing the need to continue on a path of education, but Kick It Out say they are “disheartened” – and FARE insisted Bulgaria should have been kicked out of Euro 2020.
