Fan Behaviour

Tackling Anti-social and Criminal Behaviour

We want to make you aware of new measures being taken across all of football to ensure everyone can have a safe and enjoyable experience.  We are supporting strong action from the FA to tackle anti-social and criminal behaviours that put all of us at risk.

Please remember the following activities are illegal, dangerous, carry serious consequences and have no place in our game:

  • Carrying or using smoke bombs or pyros
  • Invading the pitch or entering the pitch without permission
  • Throwing objects onto the pitch
  • Drug use within the football ground
  • Discriminatory behaviour

For everyone’s safety, we will report anyone carrying out these offences to the police, which can result in a criminal record.  This could affect your employment and education, and in some cases, result in a prison sentence.

Anyone who enters the pitch without permission and those carrying or using smoke bombs or pyros will now receive an automatic club ban.  These measures could also now apply to the parents or guardians of children involved in these activities.

These measures reflect the seriousness of the risks to fans and staff – pyros can burn at 2000 degrees Celsius and can cause life-changing injuries and potentially fatal asthma attacks. Entering the pitch endangers everyone because it’s impossible to tell the difference between a celebrating fan and a violent attacker. That is why the pitch must remain a safe space for players, and the stands for supporters.

The football authorities are working with clubs and the Football Supporters’ Association to make sure everyone feels safe on matchdays, by cracking down on dangerous behaviour that can put fans, players, staff, and match officials at risk.We know those who commit these illegal acts do not represent the majority.
