Fact Check: Pile Of Litter Left By Soccer Fans In Frankfurt Falsely Linked To Mass Immigration

Date:

A video showing a pile of litter in an open field has gone viral on social media, claiming that it is the impact of mass immigration in Frankfurt.

The video is shared on Facebook with a caption: “Not sure how long Frankfurt will survive the consequences of mass immigration.”

FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim, and found it to be FALSE.

Doing a simple Reverse Image Search of the viral video keyframes, the NM team identified a YouTube channel carrying the same video on June 24, 2024, with a caption: “Euro 2024: What environment looks like after the football game.”

Numerous other videos, reports, and images also show the square filled with England fans, with various angles capturing the mess they left behind, confirming the authenticity of the scenes.

Searching further, we found the city’s press release confirming that the rubbish was the result of the fans’ gatherings, and not related to immigration issues.

Thus, we can conclusively say that the video showing litter left by soccer fans in Frankfurt has been falsely linked to mass immigration.
