Football supporters are being urged to enjoy the Euros safely and responsibly ahead of England’s first match this weekend

Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions take on Serbia at 8pm on Sunday 16 June 2024 in their first game of the much-anticipated tournament which is being held in Germany.

As part of the force’s commitment to keep people safe, officers have been preventing high-risk individuals from travelling to Germany in the run-up to the tournament, which includes contacting those already subject to Football Banning Orders and ensuring they hand in their passports before the tournament begins.

Each of the Community Safety Units has been working with licenced premises and other event organisers and partner agencies to provide public safety guidance.

During the games, extra officers will be out and about at key locations such as pubs, clubs and bars that are screening the matches. They will be on hand to deal with any disorder that may occur and will also be available to assist anyone who may feel at risk or has become a victim of crime.

Chief Superintendent Simon Alland from Kent Police said: ‘We want everyone to enjoy the tournament in a safe and responsible manner.

‘That’s why we’ve been working with local event organisers and premises to provide advice on how to minimise any trouble and provide a safe environment for people to enjoy the tournament.

‘We know emotions can run high during football games and especially tournaments, but we will not tolerate violence of any kind, whether that’s while out socialising or behind closed doors. There’s no excuse for it.’
