Football League Security Statement

19 November 2015

After the tragic events in Paris last week, the Football League have released this statement regarding supporter safety ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League One clash with Barnsley.

A Football League spokesperson said:

"Since the tragic events in Paris on Friday night, The Football League has been in regular contact with all of its member clubs asking them to remain vigilant in maintaining the high levels of matchday and non-matchday security that is in place at their stadiums.  

“While there is no specific intelligence of a heightened threat to our matches, the League is nonetheless in constant dialogue with the National Counter Terrorism Security Office, the Police, the Premier League, the Sports Ground Safety Authority and other key stakeholders to ensure that clubs are aware of the latest intelligence and advice.  

“We would also ask supporters to be vigilant and patient of any measures implemented by club security staff that are intended to protect their well-being.”
