Club Charter On Pyrotechnics

22 February 2020

As we prepare to take on Crewe Alexandra this afternoon, Macclesfield Town 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.

Ahead of today's game, Macclesfield Town are re-issuing their commitment to tackling the use of pyrotechnics, which includes smoke bombs, flares and fireworks.

Having launched in November 2017 all EFL Clubs have signed up to a ‘Club Charter on Pyrotechnics’, with a commitment to 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. A number of Club bans have already been issued since the launch of the Charter, including an increase in Club bans for away supporters due to the ongoing co-operation between EFL Clubs.

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 always paramount.

Macclesfield Town would therefore like to remind all travelling supporters that the use of any pyrotechnic device is strictly prohibited within all EFL stadia and strong action will be taken in the event of any such devices being discharged.

We would like to thank all our supporters for their ongoing co-operation in this matter - so that we can all enjoy the game in safety.
