Police ready for celebratory soccer fans


Vaud police say they’re ready to handle large crowds that are likely to form at the end of each Euro 2021 game.

No games are in Switzerland – but it’s expected fans will fill the streets after the matches to either celebrate or mourn the result. 

In Vaud – and it’s a practice likely to be followed elsewhere – the police will tolerate an hour of horn honking before clamping down on unnecessary noise. 

The tournament starts on Friday June 11 with Turkey playing Italy in Rome. Switzerland’s first game is on Saturday against Wales.
