Holidaymakers flying out to Spain over the next few weeks have been warned they may be banned from wearing their England shirts. Bars will be packed with England and Scotland fans as the Euros gets under way this Friday and continues over the coming weeks.

But in some places, fans wearing football shirts could be turned away. This could includes restaurants and attractions which don't want rowdy behaviour associated with football fans - even if people wearing football tops aren't doing anything wrong.

Anyone in an England shirt could be denied entry to some places and told they are not welcome. It comes as some areas will be nervous about boozey Brits turning up en masse to cheer on the Three Lions during the Euros amid fears over the potential for trouble.

Majorca in particular could take a tough line on football shirts, travel experts say. In many areas, holidaymakers should have no problem showing up to bars wearing England or Scotland shirts, particularly in bars showing games.

Experts at One Sure Insurance said: "As the Euros kick off this month, we are seeing increasing numbers of British tourists head to their holiday destinations to enjoy matches in the sun. This has meant increasing bans on specific clothing items including football shirts and novelty wear to promote a more respectful environment.

“Majorca has seen multiple restaurants targeting clothes associated with drunken tourism. We’ve also seen that wearing just a bikini or being bare chested with swimming shorts away from the beach could land tourists fines of up to £500 in various locations.

“We are urging all travellers to familiarise themselves with these regulations before departing to ensure a safe and enjoyable holiday experience.”
