Hungary was ordered by UEFA to play three matches behind closed doors in response to the discriminatory behaviour of football spectators. The ban for one match was suspended for probation for two years. This ban does not apply to the World Cup, which is under FIFA jurisdiction.
The Independent writes that
the Hungarian Football Federation was fined 100,000 euros, and they have to display an #EqualGame banner with the UEFA logo on it.
UEFA made a statement that there will be investigations regarding the Hungary-France European Championship because many supporters were yelling racist comments. Five days later, the German press found out that homophobic songs were sung at the Germany-Hungary European Championship. The ban will affect the next League of Nations, writes szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu.
Peter Szijjártó wrote on his Facebook page that a committee that makes such a decision is pathetic and cowardly.
“Seems like UEFA is continuously using labour-minded informants in auditoriums, who have nothing else to do but to write reports about who said what (or not said) in the auditorium. Like in Communism: no need for proof, reporting the informant is enough.”
Many Hungarians are now enraged over the decision made by UEFA, especially because England got a less severe punishment when the spectators bothered the Danish goalkeeper with laser. Even though this could have affected the game, England only got a 30,000-euro fine, writes Index.
