Security staff and senior executives working in English football have been disturbed by text messages from Wembley Stadium director, Liam Boylan, completely ignores the all-out failures of Euro 2020 can eventually lead to death.

Just two days after discovering an independent review of the event – authorized and paid for by Football association (FA) – ruled that the organization was “not the right fit for the occasion” and there was a “collective failure to plan for the worst-case scenario,” noted Boylan, “the stadium delivery team world class” in an omitted LinkedIn post dangerous chaos on the ground on July 11, 2020.

A Championship safety officer told The Independent it is “equal to the course to pretend nothing is wrong,” adding that “the priority for Wembley is PR over everything else”.

According to the Sports Field Safety Authority (SGSA), “the responsibility for safety at a sports field always rests with the ground management,” a fact that repeated in Baron Casey’s review although it largely forgave Wembley, the FA and all other authorities for their egregious missteps before, during and after the final.

A fan liaison officer for a top Premier League club felt Boylan’s post and the aspect of the review were right to make it difficult for thugs who weren’t ticketed but were passive in the face of rights. force, excluding them from blame, has introduced a “culture at the top of English football to shirk responsibility and ensure supporters are the enemy. They would rather punish the fans than focus on active crowd control, better stewardship, and evidence-based event management. ”

One of the game’s leaders in terms of security and operations provided a more detailed take on that point. The Independent. “It seems lost on the stadium that they also played a role in what was seen as a disastrous operation with considerable criticism of their plans.

“Visitors to our national stadium need to trust security operations and these comments two days after a significant independent report that not only undermines the outcome of the investigation but also the expectations that visitors may have about their safety.

“The comments also make it clear that at a high level there is no culture of security at Wembley and that is a very dangerous scenario, especially given the increased risk of terrorism in the UK.”

One of Baron Casey’s recommendations to the FA and Wembley was that “security plans should be regularly reviewed by experienced safety and security professionals to ensure rigor”. None of the experts in that field who contributed to this report believe it will be done.

Boylan has been approached for comment.
