Pyro Reminder

Further appeal as Fireworks Day approaches

26 October 2017

Oxford United have received, along with all clubs in the EFL, a letter from the league warning of the dangers of pyrotechnics at matches.

With 5th November almost here it is easy to buy fireworks at this time of year and the club would like to once again reiterate their stance that pyrotechnics are not allowed at any Oxford United game. They are dangerous not just to the person who brings them in to the ground but also to other spectators.

Incidents have now been dealt with after two recent games. A fan who was carrying three smoke bombs into the game at Peterborough has been given a three year football banning order. A 16-year-old youth who let off a smoke bomb at the away game at MK Dons has also been identified and is currently being dealt with through the legal system.

In both cases the matter went through the legal processes and at the same time the club is considering both incidents with an eye to further club specific bans.

Once again we ask all fans to help us on this matter. Pyrotechnics and smoke bombs are illegal and will not be tolerated at Oxford United.
