Russian’s fans at Euro 2016 Championship could attract country’s participation ban


Both England and Russia have been threatened with expulsion from the European Championship if there is further violence by their fans. UEFA told the English and Russian federations on Sunday “to appeal to their supporters to behave in a responsible and respectful manner.” “We understand the potential implications of our supporters’ actions and wholly accept that every effort needs to be made by the FA to positively urge them to act in a responsible and respectful way,” the English FA responded. There are considered at the same time “corrective measures to strengthen the deployment of security personnel at stadiums, in close collaboration with local authorities.”

Russian fans had a similar comportment at Euro 2012 when UEFA imposed a series of sanctions, including fines, on the Russian Football Union for incidents.
