Photo: Teis Markfoged There was great admiration for the support from Brøndby’s passionate fans when the blue-yellows went to the first away match in a European group game since 2005. Around 1000 Brøndby fans had taken the trip to the city by the Rhône river, and they dominated the soundscape at Groupama Stadium. The support was marked with a larger inferno of fireworks brought along. That kind of thing is not well-liked by UEFA. It has now triggered a massive fine from the organization behind the Europa League. Brøndby has received a huge fine for the followers’ fireworks. In total, the blue-yellows must hand over 34,000 euros to UEFA for the pyroshow – that is around a quarter of a million kroner. The article continues … Ekstra Bladet spoke to some of Brøndby fans in Lyon before the match. The giro card is among the largest that UEFA has handed out this autumn for pyro during matches. Olympiacos and Legia Warsaw have received greater penalties. The fine is an escalation compared to previous penalties to Brøndby in connection with the European campaign, where the blue-yellows were fined 16,000 euros in connection with the home game against RB Salzburg. Brøndby played its fourth group match in the Europa League on Thursday, where it was a draw against Glasgow Rangers. With two points in dividends so far in the tournament, further promotion looks difficult.
