Following the recent crowd disturbances at the match against Anderlecht London Stadium, UEFA has issued sanctions.
The Europa Conference League match on 13th October against the Belgium side, which West Ham won 2-1, saw significant crowd trouble from the away support, with Anderlecht fans seen throughout to be throwing missiles, flares and also broken seats.
The disciplinary of footballing body UEFA has now reached a verdict after an investigation and has fined Anderlecht 50,000 euros and has banned the club from selling away tickets for the next 2 away matches in UEFA competitions.
The club will also be under probationary review by the governing body for 2 years once the 2-match away ban is concluded, to reflect the significant damaged caused by the away support in the loss to our Hammers.
UEFA have also ordered the Belgium side to compensate West Ham for damages to the stadium, namely the cost to many seats that were broken and used as weapons against the Irons fans.
Whether West Ham will receive any punishment for failing to control fans remains to be seen, however the punishments set out by UEFA will be welcomed by all connected after a night of unsavoury scenes.
