The result of the EU referendum was announced on Friday and the people have decided that the United Kingdom would no longer be a part of the European Union.
The decision of “Brexit” has come at a time when England, Wales and the Northern Ireland are playing at the Euros in France. It would undoubtedly have a number of ramifications and could completely turn the face of English football. This is how fans reacted to the decision:

Going to think about the #WAL #NIR match instead of #Brexit. At least we are still in Europe when it comes to football. #EURO2016

I wonder what problems this will cause for British football clubs with their foreign players #Brexit

I think the most important #brexit question is: will England’s football team finally win a major cup? #EURO2016

Britain is the lad who gets hit in the back of the leg by a football, picks it up, punctures it, then throws it on the roof… #brexit

I don’t think #Brexit will effect on football in England.Too much money in PL. IMO England will change some rules to get work permit easily.

Football fans in the UK who voted for #Brexit are probably kicking themselves now as foreign players may not get a work permit to play.

People surprised at Brexit.
At least the football fans should be used to Britain exiting anything European.

The flip of the coin from #Brexit:
England could enter:
– Copa America
– Africa Cup Of Nations
– Asian Cup#ThinkPositive

Think about @EuropaLeague @ChampionsLeague football. #Brexit is going to force fans to have to get visas to go watch their teams weekly.

All that national pride around football and @EURO2016 didn’t do anybody any good with the #Brexit vote. Should have voted in January.

Boris Johnson looks like the type of man who would passionately manage a Sunday league football team into relegation. #Brexit
