Read more ...The group stage of EURO 2016 showed that much fewer problems occurred wherever authorities cooperated constructively with leading fan groups from the Fans Embassies as part of the solution and facilitated a good atmosphere for the majority, especially at high-risk matches. We call for a reinforcement of a sincere dialogue with supporters’ representatives in order to foster the early prevention of troubles for the rest of this UEFA EURO 2016.

We believe it is extremely important to take their views and work into account for an appropriate assessment of events in Saint-Etienne and would hope that any UEFA sanction would award this proactive commitment against hooliganism from the side of fans accordingly. Find their statement below:

Both serve as a very useful reminder that, as we have long argued as football fans from across Europe, you should never judge a whole nation’s fans on the basis of the behaviour of a small minority. Read their full statements here:

Statement from the Fans’ Embassy Russia:

 “The Fans’ Embassy Russia team expresses its regret about the situation with riots involving Russian fans in Marseille. We strongly believe that such behaviour is not the norm for our citizens who are traveling to support the Russian national team in France. We are very sorry for those English people who have been injured and are now in hospital. We wish them the fastest recovery.
