By: Bill Osborne
Date: 23/10/2007

THE Home Office have issued the latest figures relating to football violence and other offences and listings of banning orders by club. Grimsby still have more banning orders than any team in League Two.

Football ­Related Arrests and Banning Orders Season 2006/7

Statistical Highlights

  • 6% decrease in arrests for violent disorder - the worst types of football ­related violent criminality.

  • 46% decrease in arrests for football violence over the last three seasons. Arrests for football violence now the lowest on record.

  • Overall increase of 8% in arrests for all types of football ­related offences reflecting tougher police approach to anti ­social and disorderly behaviour likely to spoil match day experience for the vast majority of football supporters.

  • Total attendance at football matches involving English and Welsh clubs and international teams increased by 5% to more than 38.6 million.

  • With just 3,788 arrests, this represents just 0.01% of spectators.

  • During the season an average of 1.21 arrests were made per match (inside and outside of stadia) - overall 57% of arrests outside and away from stadia.

  • One arrest or less was made at 77% of matches. No arrests at 68% of all matches.

  • Arrests for racist chanting down 25% ­ to the lowest level on record. Arrests for missile throwing up to 97 as police clamp down on early season spate of high profile missile incidents.

  • 43% of all matches were police free - continuing to free police resources to deal with local police and community priorities.

  • The number of football banning orders decreased by 5%, down to 3,203 on 9 August 2007 from 3,387 on 10 October 2006. This represents

  • 644 new banning orders imposed during the period. Orders are time limited and expiring all the time.

    Banning orders are proportionate - more than 64% of individuals convicted of football violence were made subject to banning orders compared to less than 8% of those arrested for alcohol ­related offences.

    Banning orders work - since 2000, 94% of individuals whose orders have expired are assessed by police as no longer posing a risk of football disorder.
