NYON, Switzerland (AP) UEFA has opened a case against Tottenham after three spectators ran on the pitch during a Europa League match in an ambush marketing stunt.

UEFA says its disciplinary panel will judge a single charge relating to field invasions, on Dec. 11.

Play was stopped for 10 minutes when the referee took Tottenham and Partizan players off the field after the third invasion in the first half of Thursday's match.
