English, Polish FAs fined by FIFA

FIFA fines both English and Polish FAs following a recent World Cup qualifier.

FIFA has fined both the English and Polish Football Associations following a recent World Cup qualifier at Wembley Stadium.

The English FA has been hit with a £6,800 fine and given a warning by world football's governing body after flares were set off by Polish fans during England's 2-0 win on October 15.

However, the Polish FA has been handed a fine of around £20,000 as well as a warning for their supporters' behaviour.

Nearly 18,000 away fans attended the match due to concerns over safety in other parts of the stadium.

The visitors were given almost double what their standard allocation would have been following fears that travelling Polish supporters would try to gain entry elsewhere inside the ground.
