UEFA opens Serbia, Albania disciplinary proceedings

UEFA opens disciplinary proceedings against Serbia, Albania following Tuesday's abandoned match in Belgrade.

UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against the football associations of Serbia and Albania following Tuesday's abandoned match in Belgrade.

Both sets of players were involved in a mass brawl after a drone carrying an Albanian flag flew onto the pitch during the first half of the Euro 2016 qualifier at the Partizan Stadium.

British referee Martin Atkinson then made the decision to call a premature end to the game due to the violence.

The Football Association of Serbia has been charged with setting off/throwing of fireworks and missiles, crowd disturbance, field invasion by supporters, insufficient organisation and use of a laser pointer.

Meanwhile, the Football Association of Albania has been charged with refusing to play and the display of an illicit banner.

UEFA has confirmed that the case will be dealt with by their Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on October 23.
