Authorities in contact regarding misconduct of minority of fans.Following incidents involving pyrotechnics at our games against Crewe Alexandra and Barnsley, the Club have today received a communication from The Football Association.
The Football Association have explained the serious financial repercussions the Club will now face should there be further pyrotechnic devices brought inside stadiums by our fans.
The statement from The FA said, “Please be advised that we may have to consider disciplinary action against the club if further reports of spectator misconduct should be received and The Association reserves the right to refer to the current matters in such circumstances.”
Doncaster Rovers Football Club would like to reiterate our stance that we are absolutely against the use of pyrotechnics inside or outside of any football stadium.
Supporters found using pyrotechnics either at Keepmoat Stadium or at any away ground will be the subject of action by the Club and the police.
Such is the determination of the authorities to eradicate the use of pyrotechnics from football; any supporter found to be using them could be liable to a criminal conviction and, in certain cases, imprisonment.
As a Club, Doncaster Rovers imposes an indefinite ban on any supporter who violates our strict no-pyrotechnics policy.
As well as negatively affecting other fans enjoyment of the game, pyrotechnics are a serious danger to those with breathing difficulties and disabled supporters who cannot easily escape from the smoke.
