The FA has revealed that it will conduct a thorough investigation into how fans entered the stadium of Euro 2020 without tickets. A number of fans forced themselves into the stadium for the Euro 2020 final at Wembley. There have been reports that despite security removing ticketless fans from the stadium, a number of fans watched the entire match. Fans with tickets were too scared to confront people in their seats.
“We will carry out a full review and investigation into the events that took place at Wembley Stadium before and during the Euro 2020 final.” an FA spokesperson said about some fans without tickets during Euro 2020. “This will be done in collaboration with the police, the Greater London Authority, the Safety Advisory Group, and the tournament delivery stakeholders.”
There were a number of videos posted online where people were attacked in the stadium. There were a number of areas in London that had a disorder. The MET police have made as many as 60 arrests for actions during the Euro 2020 final.
”Security and stewarding numbers for the Euro 2020 final exceeded the requirements for the match and were greater than any other previous event at Wembley Stadium.” the FA statement added. “However, the behaviour of the people who illegally forced their way into the stadium was unacceptable, dangerous and showed total disregard for the safety and security protocols in place. No steward or security staff should be subjected to this type of behaviour and we thank them for their support on the night. We also apologize to anyone at the match whose experience was affected by this unprecedented level of public disorder.”
