FC Copenhagen are facing disciplinary proceedings after their fans lit up a corner of Leicester City’s King Power stadium with pyrotechnics during their Champions League match on Tuesday.
European football’s governing body UEFA said in a statement that the Danish champions had been charged with “setting off of fireworks” during their 1-0 defeat and the case would be dealt with on Nov. 17.
Leicester, the home club, were not charged.

UEFA has a strict ban on flares and fireworks in stadiums although many supporters said on social media that they were impressed after Copenhagen supporters put on what amounted to a full-blown pyrotechnics display.
Others wondered how stewards could have allowed so many fireworks into the stadium while confiscating sandwiches and other small items off fans at previous fixtures.
