WHO ARE WE?

The arrest and prosecution of football supporters is often a very different experience to those arrested for general criminal offences. For the supporter facing court proceedings today, a football banning order is very likely to be applied for by the prosecution if the supporter is convicted. No spectator of any other sport risks huge restrictions on their freedom of movement and travel overseas.

Our experience and expertise has led to consistently positive outcomes despite the all too often negative portrayal of football supporters in the media. Our aim is to provide a unique source of legal assistance, information and representation to all football supporters in England and Wales.
