Ahead of this weekends fixture against Crewe Alexandra, Port Vale are again alerting supporters to the dangers surrounding the use of pyrotechnics within football grounds.
Any supporter that has been, or found to be, in breach of the terms of the Charter is subject to a minimum three-season Club ban. A number of Club bans have already been issued since the launch of the Charter, including an increase in Club bans for away supporters due to the ongoing co-operation between EFL Clubs.
Clubs are permitted the flexibility to reduce the length of the Club ban should an offender recognise the danger of their actions, although the overall safety of supporters is paramount.
We would also like to remind fans ahead of the fixture, that we will ensure that everyone is treated fairly, with respect and that it will provide access and opportunities for all members of the community to take part in, and enjoy, its activities.
The club are fully committed to promote inclusion and to confronting and eliminating discrimination whether by reason of age, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, marital status or civil partnership race, nationality, ethnicity(race), religion or belief, ability or disability, pregnancy and maternity and to encourage equal opportunities.
