“NO LONGER EX­ISTS” ??

Soccer 360 - - Premier League -

Back in 1985, a leg­is­la­tion was in­tro­duced pro­hibit­ing fans from con­sum­ing al­co­hol while at­tend­ing football matches. Now a num­ber of Football League clubs want the ban to be lifted. Sev­eral clubs, in­clud­ing Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley, Port Vale, For­est Green Rovers and Sun­der­land are be­hind the move­ment to have the law changed. Many of the clubs be­lieve the law change would pro­vide fans with a bet­ter match­day ex­pe­ri­ence and de­crease binge drink­ing be­fore matches and dur­ing half time. The change in law would also pro­vide clubs with an in­crease in rev­enue. The law was in­tro­duced in re­sponse to hooli­gan­ism in the UK, a prob­lem that no longer ex­ists, at least not at the same scale.
