West Ham United have accepted a UEFA penalty and will play their Europa League match at Rapid Vienna next week without fans.

And the English Premier League club confirmed, on Wednesday, that the Continental Federation provided evidence for these allegations. She said in a statement that the sentence had been accepted. The club was originally “surprised”.

And soon West Ham faced the opponent’s punishment

West Ham were punished for rioting by their supporters in the 2-2 match in early November in the UEFA Cup match at KRC Genk Stadium. The London club wrote that evidence was presented that a small group of fans without tickets entered the stadium illegally and caused problems. Judge the behavior of this group and want to get to know people.

Originally, all tickets for Rapid Match vs West Ham were cancelled

For the game in Vienna, which has been sold out for days, all 23,500 tickets were originally sold out, 1,700 of which went to West Ham fans. It is still open whether Rapid will be allowed to sell these tickets to its fans. “We are currently in an exchange with UEFA to show if we can make the extra capacity available to our fans. We assume that will be possible and we will, of course,” said Christoph Peszek, Rapids Managing Director, APA Economist.
