Everton Safety announcement
Everton Football Club does not condone the use of pyrotechnics whatsoever those found using them either home or away will be subject of action by the Club and the Police. Being convicted of using them could also result in a jail sentence that is how seriously the matter is being treated by courts across the country. As a Club we would also impose an indefinite ban on anyone caught using pyrotechnics. Apart from the risk of a ban or conviction the devices have a serious effect on others, particularly those with breathing difficulties and the disabled in wheelchairs who cannot easily get away from the smoke.
During the season 2015/16, we have noticed an increase of persistent group “bouncing”, culminating in beer being thrown in the air. This has happened on both home and away concourses and would stress has only involved a very small minority of fans.
This has resulted in both the Club and the Police receiving complaints from supporters who have become soaked in beer. As we are sure you will agree this is anti-social behavior and people should not have to put up with this. As a consequence both the Club, Merseyside Police and supporters groups have discussed how this should be addressed.
Firstly, both the Club and the Police want to make it clear that we want ALL our supporters to enjoy their day and we understand that this may include singing and an element of “bouncing” as a group.
However, a decision has been made that should home or away fans participate in the throwing of alcohol in any area of the stadium, they will be dealt with by Match Day Stewards with the full support of Merseyside Police Officers. This could culminate with an ejection from the ground or potentially an arrest, dependent on the specific circumstances.
This season, you will see more stewards and Police Officers on the concourse, who will provide early advice should a situation look like it is getting out of control.
Please continue to enjoy the match but we ask that you also consider other supporters and how they will be affected by your behavior and we ask for your support in this.
