A total of 87 people from Wales who have been violent at football matches must surrender their passports to the police ahead of Euro 2016.
The fans, who have been given football banning orders, are not allowed to travel to the tournament in France.
United Kingdom Football Policing Unit (UKFPU) has sent letters telling them to give their passports in by 19:00 BST on 1 June or risk being arrested.
Orders are granted when people are convicted of football-related offences.
They are issued by a court for a minimum of three years.
In total, 45 banning orders have been given to Cardiff City supporters, 12 to Swansea City, 11 to Newport County and 19 to Wrexham fans.
South Wales Police Supt Steve Furnham said: “As anticipation is growing for a summer of football, we want to ensure that fans have an enjoyable and safe Euro 2016 experience.
Anyone on a banning order must surrender their passport to the police 10 days before an international football tournament, such as the Euros or the World Cup, begins.
