England fans arriving in Poland have literally been read the riot act by police.
Travelling fans arriving in Krakow to follow the England squad at their training camp have been issued with a letter warning them that Poland's Orders of Security Law for Mass Events is in force.
The order bans violence, drunkenness, sex in public places, disobeying police instructions and any action deemed to be "disruptive" by police.
Fans can even be arrested if police see vomit stains on their clothes as evidence of drunkenness.
"Anyone who wants to come here to watch football will be more than welcome," said one officer.
"But anyone who thinks they're here to cause trouble will wake up wondering which truck hit them," he added.
The act - specially drawn up last year for the tournament - even bans the sale of high strength beer near a stadium or fan zone.
"Police will act quickly and decisively," said a police spokesman.
The warning comes after England fans in Krakow were told that troublemakers face a severe police crackdown.
Riot police armed with special sonic canons that can make victims wet themselves have been joined by Poland's elite SAS-style GROM troops, which translates as Lightning Squad.
The troops have been training for weeks with assaults on specially converted buses and cafes backed up by Poland's feared police Riot Squad and Anti-Terror Unit.
One local paper said: "They will come down on louts like a bag of anvils."
