    UEFA Imposes Heavy Sanctions on Legia Warsaw Following Birmingham Stadium Incident

    UEFA, the governing body of European football, has taken stringent measures against Legia Warsaw, imposing a fine of €100,000 and a five-match travel ban for fans in European championships. These penalties come in the wake of the disturbances that occurred before the Conference League football match between Legia Warsaw and Aston Villa in Birmingham on November 30.

    The incidents around Villa Park unfolded both before and during the match against Aston Villa. Objects such as flares, branches, and stones were reportedly thrown towards law enforcement officers. Four police officers sustained injuries, and 46 individuals were arrested in connection with the unrest.

    In addition to the financial penalty and fan travel ban, Legia Warsaw is obliged to cover the costs incurred by Aston Villa for the repairs to damages caused during the violent episode.

    The club faced a 1-2 defeat in England, leaving them with nine points and securing the second position in Group E of the Conference League table. Legia Warsaw’s draw against AZ Alkmaar in Warsaw on December 14 would assure them a place in the knockout stage.
