UEFA fines AIK ?60,000 for fan violence

UEFA has fined Stockholm club AIK ?60,000 ($82,000) for fan

violence after a Europa League playoff match against Levski

Sofia.

AIK announced details of the fine on its website Wednesday. UEFA

had already charged AIK with ”lack of order and security” after

violence erupted outside the Rasunda Stadium on Aug. 19.

AIK hooligans attacked the Bulgarian team’s bus with rocks and

bottles after the 0-0 draw. No serious injuries were reported, but

Levski owner Todor Batkov said he and two players were hit and the

windshield of the bus was damaged.

Levski won the return leg in Bulgaria 2-1 to advance to the

group stages of the competition.

AIK was also fined euro15,000 ($20,000) for fan violence during

a July 28 Champions League qualifier against Rosenborg.
