With Euro 2016 fast approaching, Supporters Summit has compiled the following list of tips to help ensure fans have a safe and enjoyable tournament. Please read and circulate to your groups as appropriate.


After the events in Paris last year, France will understandably be on heightened security alert for the duration of Euro 2016. This means fans should allow extra time when planning their itineraries, and expect extra security to be in place at Fan Zones and in and around stadia. Fans should also be extra vigilant and report any suspicious persons or activity to the authorities as soon as possible. Stay alert, and stay safe.


Fans wishing to purchase tickets are advised to do so only via the official Euro 2016 ticket portal. This is the only way to be guaranteed that the ticket you are purchasing is official. Beware online ticket fraud! Any tickets purchased through social media sites run a vastly increased risk of being rip offs. Please be vigilant and only send your money to sellers via the official channels.


At Supporters Summit we recongise that betting on football is an important part of many fans’ enjoyment of the tournament. Fans are encouraged to bet responsibly and not to let the heart rule the head. Check the latest Euro 2016 bookmaker promotions and take advantage of enhanced odds or other special offers when betting. Only choose well known and reputable bookmakers to place your bet.


Book travel early and be aware of increased demand. The Independent travel guide for Euro 2016 gives some important advice regarding travel for fans. There is also the option of the official UEFA fans app which you can download for free. This provides up to date travel information in real time. Remember to allow extra time to complete your journey to allow for congestion and security procedures.

We hope these tips were useful and that they help you to have a safe, secure and enjoyable tournament!
