Club Statement: Pitch Incursions

5 May 2016

Notts County Football Club would like to take the opportunity to remind fans ahead of Saturday’s final home match of the season against Carlisle to stay in their seats at the final whistle.

People climbing over barriers is a true risk to their safety and to that of our stewards who are there to deter them and keep them safe.

 

In addition, the Football Association, in its letter to the club dated 21st April, has expressed its specific concern relating to pitch incursions at the end of last season and has advised that such incidents have resulted in clubs being charged and subsequently fined up to £200,000 by Regulatory Commissions.

 

It is absolutely paramount that no fan enters the pitch.


Should this instruction be ignored, the club will reluctantly be left with no other option but to take appropriate action against those concerned, which may include a lengthy ban from the stadium.


At the end of game, the players will stay out on the pitch to show their appreciation to the supporters who have stood by the team throughout this difficult season.
