The British Embassy in Kyiv is working hard to ensure that the thousands of England fans we expect to visit during the championships are properly prepared for the visit with a “Know Before You Go” campaign.
We’re also working hard to ensure we’re well prepared to provide any consular assistance which may be needed, e.g. in cases of fans losing their passports.
These preparations are standard for all major overseas tournaments in which England takes part, including the World Cups in South Africa in 2010 and in Germany in 2006. I was in Germany for the latter and was privileged to watch England beat Paraguay 1-0 in Frankfurt.
