UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against FC Copenhagen after the Danish soccer club's fans set off fireworks during their 1-0 UEFA Champions League defeat at Leicester on Wednesday morning AEDT.

European football's governing body has been cracking down on the use of fireworks, flares and smoke bombs by supporters, with Celtic, Liverpool and Manchester City among the clubs recently fined or warned for breaching regulations on pyrotechnics.

A statement posted on UEFA's official website said FC Copenhagen had been charged for "the setting off of fireworks - article 16 (2) of the UEFA disciplinary regulations" on Tuesday night.

UEFA's control, ethics and disciplinary body will hear the case on November 17.
