UEFA continues their fight against unruly fans at EURO 2016, handing down a fine of more than $100,000 to the Croatian federation after their match against the Czech Republic.

The match, which ended a 2-2 draw, was briefly stopped in the 86th minute when Croatian fans threw multiple flares on the pitch in a protest against their federation’s leadership.

The Croatian federation was also banned from selling tickets to people identified as hooligans, although that may be easier said than done.

One Croatian supporters’ group has already announced plans to protest at their final group stage match in Bordeaux on Tuesday, where they face Spain for the top spot in Group D.

Just ten days into the tournament, nine countries have already been charged by UEFA for poor fan behavior.
