1 year ban for all Premier League fans across the Kingdom
Football!! Football!!, that’s what the chants are there on a daily basis in the United Kingdom and with the Premier League being the cherry on top of the cake, it’s a win-win situation for everyone. Although there also some repercussions for the obsessed love of football.
The football lovers who run on the field or make use of objects like smoke bombs and pyrotechnics at English Premier League matches will automatically be banned from the clubs for a period of minimum of one year.
The big teams have decided to introduce the sanction with immediate effect on Wednesday at a meeting of league shareholders, this has come as a step towards managing the anti-social behaviour in the matches.
Moreover, the league has said the bans could be extended to accompanying parents or guardians of children who take part in such conduct as well. The ban is applicable to both home and away matches.
After the decision by the authorities of the league, concerns were raised about safety issues inside stadiums following incidents which happened at the end of last season in the Premier League and lower leagues.
Recently, Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira kicked out at an Everton fan who was making taunts at him during a field invasion at Goodison Park.
Furthermore, Sheffield United captain Billy Sharp was headbutted in the face by a Nottingham Forest fan at the end of a playoff game in the second-tier Championship. The Forest fan was given a 24-week prison sentence.
