Burnley have issued the following to Leeds fans...
Burnley Football Club is a family club and the Safety Team is committed to providing the best customer experience for all people attending the ground.
To ensure that items that may affect that customer experience, are not brought into the ground, Burnley F.C. have a number of stringent entrance procedures.
- Offering an ‘amnesty period’, allowing supporters a chance to leave any items outside the ground that may breach ground regulations
- A tiered and thorough system of search both outside the ground and inside the turnstiles
- The use of Sniffer Dogs outside the turnstile and also on the coaches before spectators depart, searching for flares, fireworks or other pyrotechnics
- A robust prosecution policy if anyone is found with such an article in their possession
These systems are to ensure the safety of all people attending matches and Burnley F.C. encourage all supporters to arrive early for the fixture as a slight delay at the turnstiles may be inevitable.
Due to the high demand for tickets, we are opening an additional bar and opening up an extra part of the concourse for the Leeds United fans.
We hope you have a great experience at Turf Moor.
