Decisions upheld for Serbia-Albania match

The UEFA Appeals Body has upheld the decisions made by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body for Albania's qualifier against Serbia in October.

The UEFA Appeals Body met today following appeals lodged by the Football Association of Albania (FShF) and the Football Association of Serbia (FSS) against the decisions taken by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) on 23 October in relation to various incidents that occurred during the UEFA European Championship qualifying Group I match between Serbia and Albania in Belgrade on 14 October.

The FShF appeal has been rejected and the original decision of the CEDB is therefore upheld. The UEFA Appeals Body has confirmed the above-mentioned match as forfeited. As a consequence, the FShF is deemed to have lost the match 3-0. In addition, the FShF has been fined €100,000.

The FSS appeal has also been rejected. Consequently, the original decision of the CEDB is upheld. The UEFA Appeals Body has confirmed the deduction of three points from the FSS for the current UEFA European Championship qualifying competition. In addition, the FSS has been ordered to play its next two UEFA competition matches as host team behind closed doors. Finally, the association has been fined €100,000.
