UEFA punishes Hungary and Romania for fan racism
Hungary has been punished for racist behaviour by fans and must play its next home European Championship qualifying match in an empty stadium.
UEFA says its disciplinary committee also imposed a 70,000 euros fine on the Hungarian Football Federation.
Fans were judged to be responsible for racist incidents at a 0-0 draw against neighboring Romania in Budapest on 4 September. UEFA says Hungary fans also disrupted the Romania national anthem.
The empty-stadium sanction will be served when Hungary hosts Faroe Islands on 8 October.
Hungary is third in Group F, trailing Romania in the second automatic qualifying place for Euro 2016 by three points.
Hungary last qualified for a major tournament at the 1986 World Cup.
UEFA sanctioned Romania on Thursday with an order to play its final European Championship qualifying home match in an empty stadium for fan incidents against Hungary and at home to Greece this month.
