Just how restrictive is the law around football fans' travel? Even the most jaded football fan may be suprised, FSF caseworker Amanda Jacks tells us more about football fans, coach travel and the law...
Go directly to jail and don’t pass go! For the uninitiated this is a rough translation of the Traffic Commissioners’ Guidelines for football supporters travelling to and from matches by coach or vehicles carrying nine or more passengers (PSVs).
You may read them in full here, but briefly the guidelines require coach operators to inform the police when groups of fans book coaches, that coaches don’t stop within ten miles of the ‘venue’ either to or from the ‘event’ unless the police give prior agreement, arrival and departure times according to the kick-off time are specified and that fans may only stop for meals at venues where alcohol is available but only if that is sold ancillary to a substantial meal with prior agreement from by the police.
