The 2016 UEFA European Championship – Euro 2016 – is taking place in France. The tournament opened on 10 June, the final will take place in Paris on 10 July.

The early stages of the tournament involved serious outbreaks of violence. England supporters were involved in clashes with police in Marseille before England’s first group match against Russia. There was further violence at the end of the game on 11 June. UEFA warned that both countries risked disqualification from the tournament if their fans were involved in further trouble. Russia was given a suspended disqualification after UEFA investigated the behaviour of its fans at the end of the England game.

The game between Croatia and the Czech Republic on June 17 was suspended after Croatian supporters threw flares on to the pitch and fought each other. UEFA subsequently fined Croatia 100,000 euros.

Hungary, Belgium and Portugal have also been the subject of UEFA disciplinary procedures as a result of their fans’ behaviour.
