Belgium, Hungary and Portugal are the latest countries to be charged by UEFA after their fans breached rules at the 2016 European Championships in France.
The Hungarian Football Federation have been charged due to their fans setting off fireworks and throwing objects during yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Iceland in Group F of the tournament.
They have also received a more serious charge related to “crowd disturbances”, with their sections of their fans having clashed with riot police ahead of their tie at the Stade Vélodrome in Marseille.
The city has been the epicentre of violence so far at the Championships, with confrontations between England and Russian fans having taken place for three-days around their opening Group B match last Saturday (June 11).
Those clashes resulted in the English Football Association being warned that their team could be thrown out of the tournament should further trouble occur, while after their fans were involved in violence in the stands, the Russian Football Union were handed a fine and a suspended disqualification.
Hungary will be hoping to avoid a similar fate when UEFA’s Disciplinary Body meet on Tuesday (June 21) to deal with their case.
Elsewhere in Hungary’s group, the Portuguese Football Federation have been charged with a field invasion, after one of their fans ran onto the pitch to have a photo with the team’s captain Cristiano Ronaldo.
It followed their goalless draw with Austria yesterday, where Ronaldo missed a penalty and saw a goal disallowed in a frustrating night for the nation.
The Royal Belgian Football Association also face action after their fans were found to have set off fireworks and thrown objects during their 3-0 Group E victory over the Republic of Ireland yesterday.
A date has not yet been set for the cases involving the Belgian and Portuguese federations to be resolved.
Albania, Romania, Turkey and Croatia have all been charged with offences earlier in the tournament, with the latter due to find out their punishment tomorrow.
Croatia’s case relates to their match with the Czech Republic, where their fans threw several flares onto the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard pitch during the 2-2 draw, with one nearly striking a steward who was attempting to clear the playing surface.
While referee Mark Clattenburg halted the match, fans appeared to be fighting in the stands, which could see the country face the risk of disqualification.
Croatia have had a recent history with crowd trouble and were last month fined and forced to play their next two 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers behind closed doors, after two friendly matches were marred by discriminatory chants.
