Well, it’s that time of year again when violent soccer fans, known as “FOOTBALL hooligans” have to surrender their passports. It seems that more than 100 of these “hooligans” from Staffordshire and Cheshire have received letters from the police instructing them to surrender their passports.
The hooligans have been ordered to surrender their passports so that they cannot attend the Euro 2012 soccer tournament. If they do not comply with the request to surrender their passports by May 30th, 2012, they will be arrested.
The reason that police have requested that the “FOOTBALL hooligans” surrender their passports is to prevent them from traveling to Poland and Ukraine for the Euro 2012 soccer tournament. These hooligans have all had football-related offenses in the past.
The hooligans will get their passports back after the final match on July 1st, 2012.
Progress has been made in keeping the matches safe for the fans and the hooligan element ruins the time for fans who come to watch the game in peace.
In addition fans have been warned that if they get into trouble in Poland or the Ukraine, they will be banned from future events and they will receive letters asking them to surrender their passports.
There are over 2,000 people in the UK that have football banning orders and all of them have been requested to surrender their passports. They all will be prevented from leaving the country for the duration of Euro 2012.
In addition, anyone else who gets a banning order between now and the Euro 2012 tournament will be ordered to surrender their passports as well.
