Russia 2018/FIFA, New Fine on Albania
Albanian Daily News
Published November 8, 2017
Albania failed to elude a fine imposed by FIFA after the last match against Italy played on October 9 in Shkodra. The torches which the Albanian National Team fans held in their hands during this match were the motive behind a Swiss Francs 5.000 fine imposed by the world’s football highest body, along with a warning for more drastic measures is such thing would be repeated.
This is not the first time that fines are imposed by FIFA to the Albanian Football Federation (AFF) due to the fans’ erratic behavior. A total sum of Swiss Francs 250.000 has been imposed by FIFA to AFF during Russia 2018 qualifiers due to the problems mostly generated by the fans.
