On Wednesday 12 July an appeal was made in the social media for an attack to be committed during the UEFA Women’s EURO 2017 football tournament in the Galgenwaard stadium in Utrecht on Wednesday 19 July. This is the day of the match between England and Scotland.
At the present time, appeals or threats of this kind are a common occurrence. Naturally the police take appeals of this kind very seriously and this utterance is being investigated in more detail.
At all large-scale events the authorities are on the alert for possible threats, and appropriate measures are taken. These include both visible and invisible measures that are devised and implemented in close consultation with the organizers of the tournament.
