Travel and security company, International SOS is advising football fans to take extra safety measures during Euro 2016, Travelmole reports.
Some of the advice issued to fans by Rob Walker, head of travel security for International SOS includes:
• Fans attending matches should keep photocopies of ID documents and a list of emergency numbers at all times.
• Fans are cautioned to ‘be aware of the impact of alcohol on judgement’ and be vigilant of suspicious activity.
• Although terrorism continues to pose a threat to travellers, high-profile events are balanced by heightened security measures.
• Petty crime remains the main risk for travellers and there is an increase in pickpocketing around stadiums, fan zones and on public transport.
The tournaments start in France on Friday (June 10) and will run for a month until July 10.
