Hundreds of football Fans ordered to surrender passports or face arrest ahead of World Cup
Published time: 5 Jun, 2018 12:03

Hundreds of suspected and convicted football Fans, who are subject to banning orders, have been called to surrender their passports to the police or face arrest.
An estimated 1,900 football fans are banned from attending this year’s World Cup in Russia, which is due to kick off on June 14. Up to 132 of them are on Scotland Yard’s watch list.

Sergeant Dave Hine of the Met’s Football Unit said: “We want to ensure that no fan who is subject to a football banning order is able to travel through Heathrow Airport to the World Cup to watch England.

“Anyone with a banning order who fails to hand their passport in during the next couple of days will have a police officer knocking on their door.”

A banning order can last up to three years and can be issued by courts after someone is convicted of football-related offences. They are issued in an attempt to prevent violence and disorder at matches both at home and abroad.

In the capital, Met police officers from the Football Unit have been stationed around London on Monday and Tuesday to collect the documents.
