UEFA has fined Ukraine and ordered a partial stadium closure after disturbances in their Euro 2016 qualifying match against Macedonia.
Ukraine were charged with racist behaviour and field invasions from supporters, and setting off/throwing of fireworks and missiles, during the match that finished 1-0 in their favour at the L'viv Arena on October 12.
Subsequently, European football's governing body has punished Ukraine with a €58,000 fine and ordered that part of their stadium be closed for their next home UEFA-sanctioned fixture against Luxembourg next June.
"The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has ordered the partial closure of the stadium during Ukraine’s next  UEFA competition match in which Ukraine will play as the host association," read a statement from UEFA.
"The sector to be closed should comprise of at least 5,000 seats.
"The Football Federation of Ukraine has also been fined €58,000."
Ukraine sit third in Group C after taking nine points from their opening four qualifying matches.comments
