Fans reminded to stay off the pitch

EFL reminds clubs to keep pitches clear at end of season

4 May 2019

The EFL has reminded Clubs and their supporters as to the potential safety implications and consequences that could occur as a result of pitch incursions taking place at any stage during the remaining league fixtures of the 2018/19 season. Supporters who encroach on the pitch risk facing a banning order as well as a criminal conviction, while the Club they support could also face a fine. A planned lap of honour upon the completion of the final home  fixture could also be hindered, with players and staff unable to take to the pitch in the event of a pitch incursion.

Supporters are advised to enjoy the occasion, but be wary of the potential repercussions for entering the field of play. Brentford FC would like to request that all supporters remain in the stands after tomorrow's match against Preston North End. The players and coaching staff would like to complete a lap of the pitch to thank you for your support throughout the 2018/19 season but will only be able to do so if the playing surface remains clear. We therefore ask that you support us in this way and remain in the stands at all times.
