The safety of fans attending Saturday is of paramount importance and security checks will be made before and during the match.

Action will be taken against anyone identified to be breaching Wembley Stadium rules and supporters are reminded that using these pyrotechnic devices inside a football stadium is a criminal offence that will lead to police action, prosecution and football bans.

Pyrotechnics and flares can burn at up to 2,500°C and can cause significant injuries to carriers and fellow spectators.

The EFL and SAFC has also seen a number of incidents that have resulted in people experiencing breathing difficulties, distress and discomfort, so we ask that you please respect other supporters and follow the regulations above.


We would also like to take this opportunity to remind all spectators that persistent standing during a match at Wembley Stadium is strictly forbidden and may result in ejection from the ground.

Persistent standing not only compromises crowd safety, but also affects the matchday experience of fellow spectators, especially children and elderly people.
