Town support EFL scheme on dangers of fireworks and flares

Town and the other 71 EFL member clubs are again alerting supporters to the dangers surrounding the use of pyrotechnics within football grounds.

Any instances of pyrotechnics use means innocent parties may be at risk of serious injury as a result.

The EFL is re-launching its commitment to tackle the use of pyrotechnics, which includes smoke bombs, flares and fireworks within EFL football grounds.  This was initially launched in November 2017 that saw all 72 clubs sign up to a new Club Charter on Pyrotechnics.

Since the Charter was signed EFL clubs have been taking strong and decisive action against any fans found attempting to bring a banned item into a ground, or those who discharge pyrotechnics.

Any supporter that has been, or found to be, in breach of the terms of the Charter is subject to a minimum three-season club ban.

Clubs are permitted the flexibility to reduce the length of the club ban should an offender recognise the danger of their actions, although the overall safety of supporters is paramount.
