Scotland and Poland both hit with hefty fines for Qualifier incidents

UEFA has fined the Scottish Football Association €20,000 following several incidents during the Euro 2016 qualifier with Poland at Hampden Park earlier this month.

A number of flares were set alight in the away section of the stadium and a supporter encroached on to the pitch and delayed the match on October 8, which finished 2-2 and ended the Scots' qualifying hopes, before being led away by stewards.

The Scottish FA was also charged with insufficient organisation with regards to the lack of body searches of supporters, as well as blocked stairways, and consequently fined by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB).

The Polish FA has been fined €40,000 euros.

That fine came as a result of their fans setting off and throwing fireworks, throwing objects and fighting with stewards.
