CLUB ISSUES PYROTECHNICS WARNING

11 January 2019

City officials have moved to remind supporters of sanctions being imposed against those found to be using pyrotechnics at stadiums.

This comes ahead of tomorrow’s game at Barnsley, following incidents which occurred during the Bantams’ 4-0 victory over Rochdale - which are now being formally investigated by the FA.

Those found to be carrying or using pyrotechnics will face a long-term ban.

Specially-trained ‘sniffer dogs’ will be used at Oakwell tomorrow, prior to the Yorkshire derby’s kick-off.
 
The dogs will be searching for all pyrotechnics that anyone may attempt to bring into the ground.

The EFL is re-launching its commitment to tackle the use of pyrotechnics, which includes smoke bombs, flares and fireworks within EFL football grounds.

This was initially launched in November 2017 and it saw all 72 clubs sign up to a new Club Charter on Pyrotechnics.
 
Since the charter was signed, EFL Clubs have been taking strong and decisive action against any fans found attempting to bring a banned item into a ground, or those who discharge pyrotechnics.
 
Fans are further reminded about persistent standing within the ground.

Standing at football matches is against ground regulations and also has a negative impact on your fellow supporters, stopping them from seeing the game.

We would like to ask for your continued cooperation on this matter.
