Statement from Linfield Football Club
Posted : 12th October 2021 at 09:03:06
Linfield FC would appeal to supporters not to bring pyrotechnics of any description to any of our games.
Such items are dangerous and are banned from games under the ground regulations and the IFA Disciplinary code.
At this club’s recent league game at the Oval and at the recent home game against Cliftonville, a pyrotechnic was thrown onto the field of play from sections of the grounds housing Linfield supporters.
This could have led to serious injury and as a result of these unwelcome incidents, this club has been deemed to be in breach of Article 33 of the IFA Disciplinary code.
As a consequence, this club has been fined £200 for each of these two breaches of the disciplinary code.
The throwing of these banned items by a small number of individuals is not showing support for this club. On the contrary, it is costing the club money in unwelcome fines.
Supporters are therefore urged not to bring these items to our games and the club will not hesitate to take action against any individual who ignores this apppeal and endangers the safety of our supporters, players or staff.
