The Football Association of England has commissioned an independent investigation into the fact that fans without a ticket fought at Wembley before the Euro 2020 final. It was reported that thousands of fans entered the stadium before beating Gates before winning against England in Italy. There were ugly scenes in the stands and at the intersections as the fans with the tickets collided with those who broke them. Outside of Wembley, it was estimated that there were about 200,000 people in a match with 67,500 content, with drunken and violent scenes blurring the event of the show.
On Monday, FA leaders told the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) that they had reported the review over the weekend, and promised that the scenes would be “embarrassing” and would be identified before and during the match.
“We decided to have a good understanding of what happened away and then through Wembley Stadium in the UEFA EURO 2020 Final on Sunday, July 11, 2021,” the statement said.
“This weekend we informed DCMS that Baroness Casey has commissioned an independent review led by Baroness Blackstock to report on the events and circumstances involved. She will speak to all stakeholders and have outside experts.
“The key importance of the findings will be that you learn lessons and never be able to repeat embarrassing scenes like this.
“We will continue to work with relevant authorities to assist in making efforts to identify responsibilities and demand accountability.”
Police have since released CCTV footage of some who want to be questioned.
