Zero-tolerance policy on throwing objects, and the use and carrying of pyrotechnics

12 September 2023

Scunthorpe United Football Club would like to remind supporters about a zero-tolerance policy with regards to throwing objects, as well as the use and carrying of pyrotechnics at both home and away matches.

Ensuring the safety of our supporters, players and staff is always of paramount importance to Scunthorpe United Football Club and the throwing of objects and lighting of pyrotechnics at football stadia is very dangerous and a serious offence. Any supporter identified to have committed such an act will be banned by the club and also subject to the possibility of criminal prosecution and football banning orders.  

Scunthorpe United will continue to work closely with the police and football authorities to stamp out this, and other types, of spectator misconduct.

We would also like to remind supporters that if there are incidents of this nature reported, then the Football Association have the power to impose serious financial penalties on the club which will almost certainly impact on its playing resources, and the frequency in which these incidents have taken place this season now make this a real possibility.
