West Ham charged over fan behaviour at Burnley game

West Ham have been charged by the FA for the behaviour of their fans during their game against Burnley in March.

Ugly scenes unfolded during the Hammers’ 3-0 Premier League defeat at the London Stadium, with some supporters invading the pitch, while others vented their anger at the club’s board.

And West Ham owners David Gold and David Sullivan were forced to leave their seats in the directors’ box for their own safety.

An FA statement read: “West Ham United FC has been charged for failing to ensure that its spectators conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and that no spectators or unauthorised persons encroached onto the pitch during the Premier League match against Burnley FC on Saturday 10 March.

“The club has until Thursday 5 July to respond.”
