As real football fans, we went to Paris, to see the Eiffel tower, but also to enjoy UEFA Euro Championship! Today, Croatia will play at 3 pm with Turkey, and we’re very excited!
Just Zagreb took a walk around Paris, and we saw a lot of football fans everywhere. Police officers are all around because this match is declared a high-risk game. With police and their dogs, it seems like the security level is at the top, and everyone appears to be in a good mood.
Croatians fans are gathering around the Around Eiffel, which is a fan pit zone. That is why streets around this area are completely closed, all the vehicles removed, and everyone has to pass the three security zones – the usual police check up, then metal detectors and then French special forces who control the very entrance to the ‘fan zone.’
Even though the match has been declared a high-risk game, there are no tensions here, and everyone is having fun. The match was classified at that level because there was an incident at the last Euro when a Turkish fan threw a bottle at Croatian fans, a tension got a bit high, but were defused by both groups calming their members. So, no matter the police assessments, we feel safe here and hope to have a great match and fun with both Turkish and our fans. Can’t wait!
