Security data failure at 2012 finals

April 8th, 2012 by · No Comments · Features, Football

Polish police are yet to update a proposed database of hooligans barred from attending Euro 2012.

“There’s no functioning list in Poland of individuals hit by stadium bans abroad, because the police have been too slow in setting it up,” Jacek Jezierski, head of Poland’s National Audit Chamber was quoted by AFP.

“To date, there haven’t been any agreements with foreign partners and there aren’t any legal norms for this.

“This could hamper police efforts to ensure security at Euro 2012, both inside the stadiums and out.”

Well, it’s certainly not going to help.

UEFA regulations prohibit any fan punished with a stadium ban from entering tournament stadiums throughout the month-long finals in Poland and the Ukraine.
