Romania is allowed to play the match against Finland on Thursday with open gates, on the Bucharest’s National Arena, the Romanian Football Federation (FRF) announced on Monday evening.
The UEFA has reversed its decision to punish Romania by closing the doors for its home matches in the current preliminaries, for racist behaviour of its fans and use of pyrotechnic devices during Romania vs. Greece on September 7, in Bucharest. It also fined the FRF by EUR 60,000.
According to FRF President Razvan Burleanu’s statements on Tuesday, the federation will make available some 10,000 tickets free of charge. 14 ticket offices will be open as of Tuesday for ticket sales near the stadium, 500 ticket offices across the country. The price is of RON 20, except for the VIP area.
The match will be played on Thursday, 21.45h Bucharest time.
