PITCH INCURSION

A statement on behalf of football authorities: Love Football, Protect the Game. 

The passionate support of fans is a vital part of what makes football so special in this country. It is completely understandable that emotions run high, particularly at this stage of the season when there is so much to play for.

However, we must remind supporters that in the interests of safety and wellbeing for everyone inside our stadiums, the pitch is for players, managers and officials, while the stands are there for fans to support their team.

At the end of last season, we witnessed some unwelcome scenes when fans entered the field of play without permission at several grounds. Even if this is done in celebratory fashion, any supporter who comes onto the pitch is breaking the law and putting the welfare of players, coaches, club staff and fellow fans at risk.

We know that this unacceptable behaviour is carried out by a minority of fans, and their actions do not represent most supporters, but they risk ruining the fantastic experience of a football match for everyone.

At the start of this season, the Premier League, EFL, NLS Leagues and The FA worked with the Football Supporters' Association to introduce new measures and stronger sanctions to tackle anti-social and criminal behaviours, such as entering the pitch and the use of pyrotechnics.

This includes automatic club bans and police action, and we have seen cases this season which have led to fans receiving criminal records. This can impact employment and education prospects, restrict ability to travel overseas, and could result in a prison sentence. Club bans can also extend to accompanying parents or guardians of children who take part in this activity.

Our message is clear: fans must stay in the stands and avoid any unnecessary disruption.

The legislation in place this season can be viewed by clicking HERE.

PYROTECHNICS

Doncaster Rovers would like to remind all supporters that the use of pyrotechnic devices is strictly forbidden.

The club has a firm stance on the use of pyrotechnics, whether it be at the Eco-Power Stadium or at any other EFL ground: they cannot and will not be tolerated. 

SEARCHES

Please note that stringent searches will take place prior to entering the ground due to several items being found in and around the stadium environment at recent games.

PERSISTENT STANDING

Please be advised that persistent standing during the game is prohibited following new legislation from the Sports Ground Safety Authority for your safety and the safety and comfort of fellow supporters.  

We politely request that all supporters remain seated for as much as possible throughout the game and that all stairwells and aisles are always kept clear as it may result in a reduction of the stadium's capacity.

SMOKING AND VAPING

The Eco-Power Stadium is a no smoking or vaping venue. Anyone found to be smoking or vaping can be ejected from the stadium.

FACEMASKS

Facemasks are optional for supporters and staff. Please be respectful of people's decisions.
