Supporter information: Matchday behaviour

Love Football. Protect the game.


Leeds United travel to Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon as they take on Southampton in the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final. We would like to thank every single supporter that will be making the journey to the capital across the weekend.

During your trip, as always, please remember that we are all representing not only Leeds United Football Club, but also the city of Leeds, and we ask that you behave in an appropriate manner and that you always show respect to all supporters, staff, and players.

Please see below, some of the policies in place at Wembley Stadium and some of the sanctions you could face for displaying inappropriate behaviours.

Offensive and discriminatory chanting:

Leeds United and Wembley Stadium have a zero-tolerance policy on any form of anti-social, offensive, and discriminatory conduct, and anyone found guilty of this behaviour will be ejected from the stadium and reported to the authorities.

Offensive tragedy-related chanting, gesturing, and displaying of abusive messages is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Wembley Stadium’s crowd safety team work hard to ensure perpetrators of this behaviour are quickly identified and reported to the Police. Those found to have committed an offence could face stadium and football bans and potential criminal prosecution.

If you witness any anti-social or discriminatory behaviour on the day, text HELP to 66566 or contact your nearest steward.


The use of pyrotechnics, flares, and smoke devices inside or outside Wembley Stadium is illegal and prohibited. Anyone caught carrying or using pyrotechnical equipment inside the stadium will be immediately ejected from the stadium, banned from future events, and dealt with by police. Those caught using pyrotechnic equipment anywhere outside of the stadium will be in breach of the PSPO order and face enforcement action. More information can be here.

Persistent standing:

Persistent standing during a match at Wembley Stadium is strictly forbidden (unless with a ticket for the safe standing area) and may result in ejection from the ground. Persistent standing not only compromises crowd safety, but also affects the matchday experience of fellow spectators, especially children and elderly people.

Please note ahead of the match on Sunday, there will be more stewards, additional ticket checks, improved fencing, new security lanes and increased enforcement of the Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) which prohibits the consumption of alcohol around the stadium on event days.

Fans are reminded to only travel to Wembley Stadium if they have a match ticket.

Love Football. Protect the Game.
