West Ham and Fiorentina have been charged by UEFA for incidents surrounding the Europa Conference League final in Prague earlier this week.

The Hammers have been charged with invasion of the field of play and throwing of objects, while the Serie A side are charged with throwing of objects and lighting of fireworks.

Disciplinary proceedings have been instigated in accordance with Article 55 of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations.

The game was halted after a cup thrown left Fiorentina captain Cristiano Biragi bleeding from the head.

Plastic pint glasses were hurled from the West Ham end throughout the first half at the Eden Arena in Prague.

Referee Carlos del Cerro Grande eventually halted play after Fiorentina captain Biraghi was hit by another object as he went to take a corner just after the half-hour mark.
