    As expected the club have now decided to go back to having netting for the 1st 3 rows of the kop going forward. Feel sorry for the sensible fans in them rows who are now going to have to move but as usual a few idiots have spoiled it for them.
    1 supporter will be banned this week for 12 months and the club say others have been identified so expect they'll be banned as well.

    Sad the club has had to resort to this tactic but fairly inevitable.

    A fine hits the club budget and if it means that we cannot recruit players, then those who behave in such a manner are adversely impacting on all of our experiences.

    Where there’s a will they’ll be a w@nker - I’m sure our cokeheads will think of another way to drag down our reputation.

    How does the netting work? Is it installed over the chairs, or suspended from somewhere....can't picture it.

    On top of the chairs. Had it there for years until recently and is used between home and away fans in Midland Road

    No pyrotechnics are allowed in any stadium. Anyone caught in possession will receive a three season ban.

    At home games, supporters may be subject to ejection from the stadium where they fail to comply with the EFL ground regulations and/or Club rule or to instructions by a Club steward, Club official or a Police officer. In most cases, supporters will be asked to change their behaviour where it contravenes the EFL ground regulations or Club’s rules; an immediate change will avoid any need for an ejection from the stadium but persistent or continued contravention will lead to an individual being ejected from the stadium. In all cases, the supporter involved must identify themselves to stewards and relinquish their season ticket/pass and/or match ticket.

    In addition to ejection from the stadium, supporters will be subject to a Club ban where bad behaviour is persistent, repeated or sufficiently serious to warrant a further sanction. Examples of potential bans might include:

    • Contravention of ticketing terms and conditions - 1 x game

    • Persistent smoking or use of e-cigarettes - 1 x month

    • Persistent live streaming of football action - 1 x month

    • Use of foul and abusive language - 1 x month

    • Persistent standing during the game - 1 x month

    • Foul and abusive language or threatening behaviour towards staff members - 2 months

    • Foul and abusive language or threatening behaviour towards other supporters - 2 months

    • Pitch incursion - 6 months

    • Bringing a pyrotechnic to any fixture - 3 season ban
    This list is not exhaustive and other misdemeanours will be dealt with on a scale relating to the seriousness of the incident. Persistent and/or repeated offences will result in subsequent Club bans being at least double the length of ban indicated above. Where incidents include criminal offences, the matter will be referred to the Police for further action. The Club reserves the right to increase or decrease any period of a Club ban on its individual merits. The Club reserves its rights to notify the Police authorities, football governing bodies or any other Club of Bradford City Club bans that have been enforced. In line with the Club’s Charter, no refund of any ticket money paid to the Club will be made during a period of a Club ban.

    Bradford City AFC will inform any supporter that is to be banned in writing to the last known address detailed on the Club’s ticket office database or any confirmed address provided by the supporter at the time of the incident. This letter will confirm the length of the Club ban and the offence for which the ban has been imposed. It will also confirm the details for any action required at the end of the Club ban and any appeals procedure.

    Appeals against a Club ban must be made in writing, to the person nominated in the banning letter within 14 days of the date on the Club banning letter. This person will normally be someone in the Club of a similar or higher management level to the person issuing the Club ban. Any such appeal must include reasons of why the ban is inappropriate and provide a day-time telephone contact. Emails will be accepted as a substitute for a letter but texts, social media, telephone calls or personal visits are not an acceptable way of submitting an appeal. The written appeal may be followed by a person-to-person meeting to discuss its contents. On appeal, the original ban imposed may be rescinded, remain unaltered, or extended. The findings of the person hearing the appeal will be final.

    Any supporter who is subject to a Football Banning Order (FBO) is automatically subject to a Club ban from all stadium facilities for the period of the FBO.

    Well with the morons baiting the police and the stewards, climbing on the wall at the front, standing all game in the walkway and setting off at least two smoke bombs on Saturday added to the pitch encroachments at recent home games you could see this coming.
    What next, reduced away ticket allocations, a members only away policy, etc, etc.

    The moronic few tar everyone with the same treatment.

    Tbh though, the club (and away clubs) have to take some of the blame. How are these yobs getting the flares into the ground? If it takes a full body search, then fair enough. Only a matter of time before someone is going to get hurt by a flare gone wrong, or the game disrupted because of smoke getting on the pitch.

    Not sure our club has to take blame unless they’ve been let off in our ground, which I can’t remember when they have? You’re right about the away clubs though, doesn’t seem like they are very thorough.

    What have sensible folk said for the last 18 months...actions have consequences, not just for you but others as well.

    Somebody mentioned earlier about reduced ticket allocations at away grounds, I don't know how Scunny and Grimsby can afford what they must be paying Lincs police given the gates they get, as well as all the stewards....

    I see the online booking system is still allowing tickets to be purchased for the front three rows of the kop.

    They are going to lure the Schooligans into the first 3 rows then throw the net over them.
