FSF statement on Croatia vs England

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

With Croatia serving a two game stadium ban issued to them by UEFA in 2015, England’s first UEFA Nations League match in October later this year is set to be played behind closed doors. Here’s our statement on the matter:

“Collective punishments, such as playing games behind closed doors, punish innocent fans every bit as much as those who have committed crimes – and in this case England away fans could end up seriously out of pocket.

“There have been precedents for UEFA making exemptions for away fans who can prove they’ve already paid for travel. We want the FA to lobby UEFA intensely to try and ensure that England fans are allowed into the game.

“The FSF is also affiliated to Football Supporters Europe and we’ll be speaking with our friends across the continent to lobby UEFA in the coming weeks and months.”
