Love Football. Protect The Game.
Love Football. Protect the Game.

The FA, Premier League and EFL are together introducing new measures and stronger sanctions across the game to tackle the increased anti-social and criminal behaviours recently seen within football grounds and underline the importance of a safe matchday environment. 

 The new set of actions, which will be implemented across all English football leagues from the start of Season 2022/23 and backed by the Football Supporters’ Association, will target activity such as entering the pitch without permission, carrying or using smoke bombs or pyrotechnics and throwing objects - as well as drug use and discriminatory behaviour.  

These acts are dangerous, illegal and have severe consequences. They have no place in football, or anywhere.

Any supporters who experience or witness any anti-social behaviour, directly or indirectly, should contact us by emailing or texting 07554 158224, giving as much detail as possible (including row, seat number and a description of the incident).

Using video evidence and stewarding practices, we will do our utmost to identify anti-social individuals and ensure that they are no longer able to attend Cardiff City fixtures and are reported to the Police. We do not consider them supporters of our Club.
