More than 2,600 Liverpool fans will take legal action against UEFA over injuries they sustained during the last season's Champions League final in Paris, APA reports citing Daily Mail.
An independent review published on Monday found that UEFA had "primary responsibility" for the failure to organize and maintain security during the final match that led to riots.
According to the report, three law firms, namely Pogust Goodhead, Binghams, and Leigh Day, are now representing the interests of over 2,600 as they now have the chance to pursue recompense for their experience.
UEFA is planning to announce a special refund scheme for fans that have been injured during clashes with police during the match, the report said.
Hours before the beginning of the Champions League final between Spain's Real Madrid and England's Liverpool on May 28, a large build-up of fans occurred at the Stade de France national stadium in the north of Paris due to overcrowding and bottlenecks at turnstiles. Police fired tear gas at fans, which was reportedly unprovoked. The match started with a 37-minute delay.
