Uefa Euro 2016

PostAuthor: Benny » Sun Jun 12, 2016 3:59 am

Hi all,
This isn't related to Kurdistan as such, but still, we got to have a thread about the Euro Championship 2016. I don't know if there are any football fans out there, but we must have somewhere where we can give our output on the tournament.(Good or bad!) For example, which team is yours?

By birth, I root for Sweden! We have Zlatan "Ibracadabra" Ibrahimovic, but also a good team around him. So we all hope the best up here in the North!

Many fear more violence tomorrow as English fans are gathering in Lille for the Wales game, same city where Russia is playing Slovakia.

Kurds here are crazy about football but fortunately supporter don't fight in a such shameful way. Perhaps because they fight in another – and genuine – war : no time for stupid violence when you face ISIS.

Perhaps they should send the English and Russian football fans to Middle East to fight ISIS

Our football fans will fight anyone given a few pints of beer =))

Chairs flying, café burning, angry scenes: 10 videos of hooligans hijacking Euro 2016

A spike in violence at the Euro 2016 championships in France have forced harsh rhetoric and measures from political and football officials – but looking at the videos of fans clashing in France, one would ask: will one suspended disqualification do the trick?

The most violent clashes took place in Marseille between Russian and English fans, preceding the game on Saturday. The brawls restarted with particular fury right in the stadium immediately after the 1:1 draw.

On Tuesday, the Russian Football Union was fined €150,000 ($168,000) while UEFA also warned that the national team will be expelled from Euro 2016 if Russian fans are involved in more violent episodes.

Media have been reporting how some 150 well-organized Russian fans opposed several thousand Brits and sent them fleeing into the streets around the stadium.

“The French and UEFA will rightly be asking themselves searching questions about how the segregation of fans within the Vélodrome stadium broke down,” UK Home Secretary Theresa May said Monday. The British minister acknowledged, however, that some England fans had also behaved “inexcusably.”

Seven English football fans, three Frenchmen and an Austrian have received prison sentences in France for taking part in the violence. The Russian fans, dubbed “ultra-violent” by Marseille prosecutor Brice Robin, have so far been punished with two arrests, both for pitch invasions and not related to violence on the streets.

But this may change as on Tuesday AFP reported a group of 29 Russian fans were searched in a hotel near Marseille and may be deported. At the same time, a bus with some 50 other supporters going to Lille was stopped on its way with those on the bus also fearing deportation.

While Moscow was clearly not thrilled with the Russian supporters and called on them not to give in to provocations, numerous videos have been posted online highlighting the scale of violence in France.

Like these two, where chairs are flying high between Russian and England supporters:

Or this one, where UK fans are getting a face-full of police teargas:

And this one, where again British fans set a café on fire:

This one, where local French youth get involved in nasty fight with a couple of days ahead of the match involving Russia in Marseille:

This one, where English fans used slogans insulting the Russian president, Vladimir Putin:

This one, reportedly of Polish and Northern Ireland fans clashing in Nice:

And this one, where German fans are purported to be kicking people carrying Ukrainian flags and later taunting them on the streets.

While Russia has already got its suspended disqualification and fine, UEFA is also looking into the violations by Croatia’s and Turkey’s supporters, who set off fires during the match two days ago (Croatia won 1:0).

Meanwhile, France has banned alcohol near Euro 2016 venues. The tournament will finish on July 10.

Euro 2016: Who is to blame for the Marseille violence?

The opening days of Euro 2016 have been marred by ugly scenes of violence, both on the streets and in Marseille's stadium. Who is to blame for the trouble - and can it be stopped?

Who's behind the violence?

England, Russia and France supporters have been involved in the most serious incidents - although they are only a tiny number of thousands of peaceful fans at Euro 2016.

Confusing and sometimes conflicting reports mean blame is difficult to definitively apportion.

Accounts suggest the initial confrontations started when England fans reacted to unprovoked attacks by groups of local youths, which were exacerbated by alcohol. French police then stepped in and deployed tear gas.

Blame for the incident at the end of the match between England and Russia - in which a group appeared to rush at English supporters - has been squarely placed on a number of Russian supporters.

According to French prosecutors, 150 Russians "well prepared for ultra-rapid, ultra-violent action" were involved. There are claims "ultras" - hardened hooligans - from both Russia and France went to the tournament intent on targeting England fans.

Some British fans complained that the "heavy-handed" police approach escalated the situation. But the behaviour of England fans has been criticised too.

Home Secretary Theresa May described the violence as "deeply disturbing" and said some England fans had let their country down by getting involved in the disorder, which also saw fist-fighting and bottles thrown.

Among those arrested so far are Britons, French, Russians and an Austrian. In a much smaller incident in Nice, about a dozen Northern Ireland supporters retaliated to what police said was an unprovoked attack by French hooligans.

How did it unfold?

Media captionFootage appears to show Russian fans charging at England supporters

About 35 people have been injured in the disorder - four seriously - and 20 people arrested.

Thursday 9 June - Before the first match of the tournament had even begun, trouble was brewing off the field. In the early hours of Friday morning, exuberant chanting by England fans outside a pub in the Old Port district of Marseille turned into drunken confrontations with local youths and French riot police. One England fan and a local man were arrested

Friday 10 June - In the build up to England's first match with Russia in Marseille, police again deployed tear gas and a water cannon in an attempt to quell clashes between England, France and Russia supporters. One Briton was seriously hurt

Saturday 11 June - As the 1-1 draw between England and Russia at the Stade Velodrome drew to a close, a number of Russia fans set off flares. TV footage showed a group of Russians charge towards England supporters, many of whom fled by climbing over fencing. Meanwhile in Nice, six Northern Ireland fans were injured in a clash with France fans outside a bar

Sunday 12 June - Uefa warned it would kick England and Russia out of the tournament if there were further violent scenes. It announced charges against Russia - but not England - for the stadium incident, but admitted there were security issues

Monday 13 June - About 150 "well-prepared" Russian hooligans were behind the Marseille stadium violence, French prosecutors said. Police "spotters" began analysing footage to identify culprits involved in all incidents. The French government urged host cities to ban alcohol near venues to prevent further violence

To what extent was the disorder orchestrated?

The stadium attacks were planned and perpetrated by "well-trained" Russian hooligans, according to Marseille prosecutor Brice Robin.

Witnesses at the game described seeing men who had "come prepared" for trouble with gum shields and gloves used for martial arts. Some British newspapers have reported that Russian "firms" issued threats to England fans well before the tournament.

Russian sports journalist Ivan Kalashnikov says many Russian fans "live under the impression that hooliganism is still a big thing in Europe and in England".

"They wanted to make an impression. It's for the Russian authorities to speak to them and make them understand there is no hooligan competition going on. There were known leaders [among the 150 stadium attackers], even though the Russian authorities banned some known hooligans from travelling."

Meanwhile, violence by England fans has largely been attributed to drunken aggressiveness rather than organised hooliganism.

British police issued about 1,400 banning orders against known hooligans from England, Wales and Northern Ireland to prevent them from travelling to the tournament, and British police hooligan "spotters" have been deployed in France.

Who are the Russian hooligans?
