DBU, the Danish football association, says it will beef up its security at Parken Stadium for Denmark’s critical Euro 2016 play-off decider against Sweden tomorrow night.
DBU’s head of communications, Jacob Høyer, said there would be a number of initiatives in place to tighten security, including more stringent entrance control.
The move comes in the wake of the co-ordinated terror attack in Paris on Friday night that left 129 dead and hundreds injured.
Serious terror threat
During the attack in Paris, a suicide bomber attempted to gain entrance to the friendly between France and Germany with a bomb strapped to his upper body.
Security personnel at the game denied the man entrance to the Stade de France, so he withdrew and detonated a few metres away at 21:20, the first of three explosions around the stadium that night.
The Danish police and intelligence agency PET are keeping a vigilant eye out following the Paris attack, and the police evaluate the terror threat against Denmark as being serious.
The game against Sweden kicks off at 20:45 tomorrow night.
