Default TOP 10 Controversies of UEFA Euro 2024

Pitch invasions
The match between Portugal and Turkey was interrupted four times by pitch invaders trying to take a selfie with Cristiano Ronaldo. Two others invaded the pitch right after the final whistle. An additional pitch invasion happened during the game between Albania and Italy.

Balkan incidents
During the group stage, several controversies came up due to the behaviour of various Balkan fans. Albania and Serbia were both fined €10,000 after their fans displayed nationalist maps; Serbian fans displayed maps of Kosovo as a part of Serbia while Albanian fans displayed maps of Greater Albania. Serbia then threatened to quit the tournament if UEFA did not take action on Croatia and Albania after fans chanted anti-Serbian slogans, an investigation was later launched into Croatia. Following Mirlind Daku chanting anti-Macedonian and anti-Serbian slogans, Albania was fined €47,250 and Daku was banned for two games. Kosovar journalist Arlind Sadiku was banned after making a double-headed eagle gesture towards Serbian fans.
