UEFA charges Unirea after fans miss start of match

BY foxsports • November 6, 2009

UEFA has charged Unirea Urziceni with poor organization after fans missed the start of a Champions League match against Rangers.

UEFA said Friday that entry procedures at the 30,000-capacity Steaua Stadium in Romania's capital Bucharest left fans queuing and late for the match Wednesday.

UEFA's disciplinary committee will deal with the case on Nov. 12.

Unirea is using the home of rival club Steaua Bucharest in the Champions League because its 7,000-capacity stadium in Urziceni does not meet UEFA standards.

Rangers also faces a disciplinary hearing next week because of its fans' behavior during the match, which finished 1-1.
