FA to investigate ticketless fan debacle at Wembley

The English Football Association (FA) has said it will carry out a full review and investigation into the events at Wembley Stadium ahead of the UEFA Euro 2020 final between England and Italy on Sunday night.

A number of ticketless fans illegally forced their way into the stadium for the match, which marked the first major final for England’s men’s national team in 55 years.

Videos on social media showed fans breaking through ticket barriers outside of Wembley and fighting with other supporters and stewards once inside the stadium. The official capacity for the match, which Italy won on penalties, was 60,000 but estimates suggest that there were around 200,000 fans in the vicinity of the stadium ahead of kick-off.
