The Disciplinary Commission has come down hard on Napoli and Spezia supporters with heavy fines and partial stadium closure as a result of the ugly clashes before, during and after their Serie A match.

It was the final game of the season and neither side had anything to play for at that stage, making the violence even more inexplicable.

There were clashes before the game and play had to be halted for circa 10 minutes while calm was restored, as ultras threw things at each other including fireworks and seats that were ripped from the Stadio Picco stands, while some tried to invade the pitch and go around the stewards.

A statement from the Disciplinary Commission confirms three stewards were injured and that there were even more clashes after the match in the area surrounding the stadium involving ‘hundreds’ of fans.

Spezia have been fined €15,000 and ordered to play with the Curva Piscina area of their stadium closed for one match.

Napoli are fined €30,000 and will have to play at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona with the Curva A section closed.

Salernitana have also been fined €30,000 and ordered to play with the Distinti area of the Stadio Arechi shut down after items including bottles and seats were thrown onto the pitch during the 4-0 defeat to Udinese, forcing the game to be halted for seven minutes.

The club was fined an extra €10,000 for an insulting chant.

Fiorentina were fined €15,000 for insulting chants towards Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic and throwing of fireworks.

Milan were fined €12,000 for insulting chants of ‘territorial discrimination’ and the throwing of smokebombs.

Venezia are fined €3,000 because items including a lighter were thrown onto the pitch and Lazio €2,000 for three smokebombs.
