Euro Football Championship


Major sporting events (and national football tournaments in particular) can create excitement and stir passion amongst fans. Unfortunately, losing key matches leads to huge disappointment which can also be manifested in aggression and violence and, although football itself doesn’t cause domestic abuse, a combination of alcohol and high emotions can often exacerbate existing violent behaviours.

During the tournament, officers and specialist support workers will conduct discreet safeguarding visits to people known to be at high risk of domestic abuse and work with community partners to put in place plans to protect them from harm.

If you or someone you know needs help or advice around domestic abuse you can find information on our domestic abuse page. You can also use the search bar at the top of the page to find a support service. 

You can report to Sussex Police via 101, online or by calling 999 in an emergency. If you report online, they can show you how to delete it from your web history so it can't be traced.

If you call 999 and are unable to speak, press 55 and you will be put through to the police automatically. 

More detail about work taking place in Sussex around domestic abuse can be seen on the Sussex PCC website.
