About 90 people were arrested during England’s Euros home matches

The Home Office said in a statement on Thursday that 92 soccer-related arrests were made at England’s home matches during the 2020-21 season, including 90 at the European Championship.

The Football Association of England commissioned an independent investigation into the disturbances that occurred during England’s Euro 2020 title match against Italy on July 11 at Wembley Stadium.

The final, which Italy won on penalties, was marred by clashes between fans and officials inside and outside the stadium.

After ticketless fans breached security cordons before the game, British police made several arrests and said 19 officers were injured.

According to Home Office data, 39 of the 90 football-related arrests made at Euro 2020 occurred during the Italy game, 28 during the Scotland game, and 18 during the Denmark semi-final.

“There were six more football-related arrests, this time involving international teams competing in Euro 2020 at Wembley Stadium. All six occurred during the match between Italy and Spain “the statement continued.
