Council of Europe Convention on safety, security and service at sports events: More signatures and ratifications expected soon

The EU Council has just published its Decision 2019/683 authorising Member States to become parties, in the interest of the European Union, to the Council of Europe Saint-Denis Convention (see here).

It is expected that, in the coming weeks and months, several EU Member States will be able to sign and/or ratify this Convention.

Currently, 31 States have signed this Convention, of which 8 have also ratified it. The new Committee on Safety and Security of Sports Events will start operating within one year after the tenth ratification.

The state of signatures and ratifications of this Convention can be consulted here.
