A joint statement around recent crowd disorder at football games in England

Tuesday 30 Jan 2024

Statement on behalf of The FA, Premier League, EFL, National League System, PGMOL, LMA, FSA and the UK Football Policing Unit:

We are very concerned about the unacceptable events that have taken place in some of our stadiums recently.

Acts of discrimination, violence and entering the field of play are all criminal offences – which can result in individuals receiving criminal convictions, football banning orders and life-time stadium bans.

While we understand that this behaviour is carried out by a small minority, we wish to remind everyone that these actions will not be tolerated and we will collectively work together, alongside the police, to bring offenders to justice and stamp this out of our game.

Love Football. Protect the Game.
