Vienna – Thursday, October 14, 2021, 8:47 p.m.

Hungary’s football association has imposed nationwide stadium bans following the riot at Wembley.

“Troublemakers who were identified by the security service on site have been banned from attending sporting events for two years under the provisions of the sports law,” said association spokesman Jenö Sipos. In the case of troublemakers, whose identification was not possible on site, the police will continue the investigation based on evidence from several sources.

In the 1-1 draw between England and Hungary on Tuesday in London, dozens of emergency services clashed with guest fans in the stands. Shortly after the game began, officials entered the stands to arrest a spectator for a racist incident, the police said. Thereupon there was unrest in which other viewers were involved. But order was quickly restored.

In Budapest in September, Hungarian fans racially insulted English players, threw objects, fired fireworks and blocked stairs. Hungary’s national team was punished by the world governing body (FIFA) with a home game in the World Cup qualifying without spectators. The association is threatened with another ghost game if similar incidents occur again.
