Supporter Behaviour...

Cambridge United would like to remind its supporters of new tougher measures and stronger sanctions relating to anti-social and criminal behaviours at football grounds across the country.

The FA, Premier League and EFL have introduced a new set of actions, which will be implemented across all English football leagues this season and are backed by the Football Supporters’ Association.

The new measures 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. Click here for more information.
