UEFA is shocked and deeply saddened by the terrorist attack which occurred yesterday in Nice.

We would like to express our solidarity with the nation of France and our sincere condolences to the families of the victims. We would also like to express our solidarity with the people of the city of Nice, who were tremendous hosts for us during UEFA EURO 2016.

There were periods of silence at both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League third qualifying round draws in Nyon. Players at the UEFA European Under-19 Championship fixtures today also observed a silence and wore black armbands in memory of the victims.
