The Northumbria police has listed more than a hundred of local names for whom this ban will apply, warning that they could be ”given a red card” if they try follow England during the tournament. Anyone who fails to comply with this ban will be arrested and prosecuted for breaching their banning order.

Everyone on the list is required to surrender their passports to a designated police station before the start of the European Football Cup, without seeing a glimpse of it until after the tournament is over.

This measurement is meant to minimize the violence and ensure a peaceful tournament. Northumbria Police’s Superintendent Gillian Mitchell says that these banning orders ”are there to prevent those intent on causing violence or disorder from attending matches, meaning that genuine fans can go to a game and watch it safely.”
