Premier League statement: Annual General Meeting

Premier League clubs unanimously agreed at the Annual General Meeting today to a series of new measures to address the unacceptable rise in anti-social behaviour involving football tragedy-related chanting, gesturing, graffiti, online abuse and other behaviours last season.

The measures are the output of a cross-football working group which was set up in December to explore available options to challenge the normalisation of such distasteful behaviours and incidents.

The issues have continued to cause significant distress to the victims’ families, survivors and affected club supporters, in addition to damaging the reputation of the clubs involved and football in England and Wales.

The action will focus on criminal prosecution, the regulatory environment, enforcement, online abuse, education and communications.

Following further football partner sign-off, full details will be publicly announced ahead of the season as part of the Love Football, Protect the Game campaign which was launched last year.
