There are 164 football fans on banning orders in the North East who won't be allowed to travel after surrendering their passports.
The 122 Newcastle United fans and 42 Sunderland fans subject to orders in the Northumbria Police force area had until last Wednesday to hand in their documentation ahead of the tournament.
Most of those supporters handed their passports into their local police station before the deadline - but eight people failed to do it in time.
The supporters - who are all male aged between 17 and 30 - were visited by police officers over the weekend and had their passports seized.
Six of them have now been summonsed to court for breach of a football banning order. The other two are set to be summonsed at a future date.

To mark the 30th anniversary of Boro's liquidation crisis, some of the key people involved in the fight to keep the club alive have been speaking to BBC Tees Sport.
The former Boro manager Bruce Rioch says he thinks one of his greatest achievements was building a team the Boro fans could be proud of, and he's delighted with the club's success last season.
The documentary Boro On The Brink will be broadcast tonight on BBC Tees Sport from 18:00.

After Eva passed away in February last year, Christina said they decided to continue to play in memory of her.
