Denmark Fined by UEFA for Abusive Banner in Euro 2024 Match Against England

Denmark fined €10,000 by UEFA after fans displayed an offensive banner during their Euro 2024 match against England. Danish FA seeks to identify and bill the responsible fans.

Germany, Bollywood Fever: Denmark has been fined €10,000 (£8,400) by UEFA after fans unfurled an abusive banner during last week’s Euro 2024 match against England.

The match, which ended in a 1-1 draw in Frankfurt, saw Denmark maintain their second position in Group C on goal difference. However, ahead of their crucial final group match against Serbia, the Danish FA faces a penalty for breaching regulations after fans displayed a banner with the message “F*** UEFA.”

Denmark is the third team at the European Championship finals to receive a fine for displaying controversial banners, following similar sanctions against Serbia and Albania. Erik Brøgger Rasmussen, director of the Danish Football Association, expressed his intention to hold those responsible for the banner accountable.

“We pay the fine, but the most important thing for us is to identify those who brought the banner into the Frankfurt Arena and pass the bill on to them,” Rasmussen told TV 2 Sport. “If we find them, they can pay. We hope that those considering bringing such banners to the stadium will think twice, as it comes with a bill of 75,000 Kroner.”

Serbia, Denmark’s next opponent in Group C, had previously threatened to withdraw from the tournament if offensive chanting from Croatian and Albanian fans went unpunished. Fans of both nations were accused of singing anti-Serbian songs during their 2-2 draw, prompting the Serbian FA to demand sanctions from UEFA.

“What happened is scandalous, and we will ask UEFA for sanctions, even at the cost of not continuing the competition,” stated Serbian FA General Secretary Jovan Surbatovic. “We are confident they will be punished because UEFA has already responded to our appeal to remove the so-called journalist from Albania from the championship. We will request sanctions against the federations of both teams.”

Suratovic added, “We don’t want to participate if UEFA doesn’t punish them. Our fans behaved much better than the others, and we don’t want one fan’s racist abuse to be attributed to everyone. We Serbs are gentlemen with open hearts, so I appeal to our fans to remain gentlemen.”

In a separate statement, the Serbian FA emphasized their stance, stating, “Due to the shameful joint chanting of fans at the match between Croatia and Albania, the Football Association of Serbia has sent a letter to Theodore Theodoridis, UEFA’s General Secretary.”

As the tension rises ahead of the final group fixtures, Denmark’s actions to address and mitigate the consequences of the banner incident will be closely watched.
