The Denmark fans charmed Sheffielders wherever they went 25 years ago this month and intrigued us with their strange fascination for the Orchard Square clock.

Portugal, Turkey and Croatia supporters also visited the city for their teams’ matches.

The city threw itself into the event, making the visitors feel welcome and hosting cultural events. It was one great party and the city seemed really empty when the visiting fans headed home again.
