Spectator behaviour

New laws are now in force to improve spectator behaviour at major sporting events in Northern Ireland.

These include offences for indecent or sectarian chanting and pitch invasion. The laws aim to help create a more welcoming and family-friendly environment at games.

Range of offences

The new legislation also includes the offence of throwing missiles on to a pitch and possessing alcohol on hired transport on the way to major sports events.

You can find out more about the new laws at the page below:
