Crowd trouble erupted before the Europa League final pitting Liverpool and Sevilla.

LONDON, United Kingdom, May 21 – Liverpool and Sevilla have been charged by UEFA following incidents involving their fans during the Europa League final on Wednesday.

Liverpool’s charges are for crowd disturbances and the setting off of fireworks, while Sevilla’s are for crowd disturbances and the throwing of objects.

Their cases will be dealt with by UEFA’s control, ethics and disciplinary body on July 21.

Police had to be called into the St Jakob-Park stadium following skirmishes between the two sets of supporters during Wednesday night’s final.

Sevilla sold just 7,000 of their 9,000 allotted tickets and Liverpool fans appeared to occupy almost three-quarters of the 35,000 capacity stadium.

There did not appear to be any segregation between the rival fans in the end housing the Sevilla supporters.

A small scuffle broke out between approximately 20 to 30 supporters but petered out fairly quickly after stewards arrived on the scene.

Police then arrived to line the aisle and provide some segregation between the sets of supporters.

Local police said that none of those involved in the trouble inside the ground were arrested as they did not receive any complaints from Basel football club.
