Denmark’s women received a four year suspended ban from UEFA
Denmark’s Women National team have received a four year suspended ban from UEFA competition matches, after refusing to play a World Cup qualifying game with Sweden in Gothenburg on the 20th October 2017.
The Euro 2017 finalists went on strike over pay and conditions causing the game on 20th October to be cancelled.
Sweden were awarded the game with a 3 – 0 win in Group 4 after Denmark’s decision not to play. UEFA also fined the Danish Football Association 20,000 EURO.
UEFA has granted DBU a conditional penalty, which means that if they fail to play a game within the next four years, they will be excluded from UEFA Tournaments.
