    A heads-up - France are hosting the 2016 UEFA European Championship, between the dates of the 10th of June and the 10th of July

    The competition is using 10 venues across France, shown on the map here:

    This will surely impact on Campsites in the surrounding area

    This football you speak of ... is it a bit like sport ?
    Note to self ... put £20 on England getting binned out in the group stages. Not so much a bet, more of an investment (y)

    Always nice for the national team to have such strong home support, they are unbeaten in this completion to date and in my view should be good for the semi's at least.

    Interesting, the biggest stadium listed is about the same capacity as The Coliseum.

    Worse, you have to pay for your won bread.

    umm - the "strong" competition come being:
    Switzerland
    San Marino
    Estonia
    Slovenia
    Lithuania

    Hard to support an emabarrassing bunch of overpaid cheating halfwits

    I referred to the supporters giving strong support, rather than the teams to date being strong. Remember San Marino managed to score against Lithuania their first ever away goal. You can't do better than that.
    Bring it on.

    Hard to get a team together with a shortage of good English players. Too much money in the Prem. attracting too many foreign players. Ipso facto.... no home grown talent getting a chance....:(

    |Good nowhere near Normandy, we go across for D Day week then will spend 2 or 3 weeks trolling round Northern France, weather permitting.
    Can't stand football.

    Thanks for the heads up for that. For those that might be interested the (bi-annual) Classic Le Mans dates are 8, 9 and 10 July 2016. Cheers Rob
