The men's 800 metres at the 2006 European Athletics Championships were held at the Ullevi on August 10, 11 and August 13.

Originally, the Latvian delegation, representing Dmitrijs Milkevics (4th), issued a complaint because Bram Som stepped out of the track twice. Som and Ellis both also complained that Milkevics had blocked their way and pushed them. However after long considerations by the jury, the result stood.
