Club statement | Pyrotechnics and anti-social behaviour

25th August 2023

Swansea City is warning supporters in the strongest possible terms not to bring any pyrotechnics to games, and refrain from anti-social behaviour, after the club banned six supporters following a range of incidents at a recent fixture.

While the club is aware the vast majority of supporters back the club in a proud and positive manner home and away, Swansea City will take robust action against anyone found to be engaging in anti-social behaviour or disorderly conduct.

The punishments resulting from the away fixture at West Brom range from banning periods of six weeks to five years.

Four individuals have been banned following unacceptable behaviour on the segregation line, which saw them ejected from the game at The Hawthorns.

The two other bans are in relation to incidents involving pyrotechnics, which are currently being dealt with by the police.

The most severe of these incidents saw a pyrotechnic strike a Swansea supporter after it was lit and thrown.

During the duration of their bans, the six individuals cannot attend games at the Stadium or any away fixtures.

Swansea City has a zero-tolerance approach to such behaviour. Supporters are reminded it is a criminal offence to bring or attempt to bring a pyrotechnic device into a stadium, and the club will robustly support police action arising from any such incidents.

These incidents are particularly disappointing as the club has repeatedly communicated warnings regarding such behaviour to supporters, and given they have occurred shortly after the EFL launched its ‘Love Football. Protect the Game’ campaign for the 2023-24 season.

Swansea City wants to place on record its thanks to the majority of our supporters, who represent the club in an impeccable manner when cheering on Michael Duff and his squad.
