UEFA has confirmed that it has opened a disciplinary investigation into the incidents at Italy-Serbia.
"Following the abandonment of yesterday’s Euro 2012 qualifying match between
Italy and Serbia at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris in Genoa after only six minutes of play, UEFA
has confirmed today that it has immediately opened a full and thorough disciplinary
investigation into the incidents of serious disorder witnessed at the match and the
circumstances surrounding it," an official UEFA statement reads.
"Once the full dossier is completed, with the assistance of both the referee and delegate
reports, the matter will be put before the independent UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body
for further review and possible sanctions.
"The sanctions that are available to the Control and Disciplinary Body can be found in the
UEFA Disciplinary Regulations, edition 2008, Article 14, and range from a reprimand or fine,
up to a stadium closure or disqualification from competitions in progress and/or exclusion
from future competitions.
"The proposed date for the meeting of the Control and Disciplinary Body to hear this case is
Thursday October, 28."
