One of Mansfield Town's primary aims is to reaffirm family values and eradicate anti-social behaviour which could cause offence at our matches.
We, as a club, are committed to preventing provocation and incitement of other individuals which may lead to breaches of the peace. Obscene, racist or homophobic chanting is a criminal offence and offenders may be ejected from the stadium and arrested, and will face a club ban and prosecution.
Safety is of paramount importance and we will not allow spectators to act in a way which may put themselves or others at risk. We have extensive CCTV coverage in all parts of the ground, including concourse areas, with recording facilities.
Spectators who are seen to be breaching our Code of Conduct may be excluded from the game in progress, future games and could receive a club ban. We know that coming to football for some is a way of life, the culmination of their working week. For others, it is an enjoyable day out with friends or family.
However, it is clear that true football fans are disgusted by the actions of a small minority who seek to ruin the enjoyment of others by their continual use of bad language, racist or homophobic comments or by using inciting behaviour which is likely to lead to a breach of the peace.
Over the past few seasons, our policy of warning offenders has proven to be very successful and we aim to build on this success with your help.
We are committed to making your day enjoyable, but if you have cause to complain about other fans' behaviour, please draw it to the attention of the nearest steward.
If you feel it too intimidating to approach a steward, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will deal with your complaint swiftly and in complete confidence. Please include the relevant row and seat numbers and a brief description of the complaint.
Alternatively, supporters can call us on the working day after the match on 01623 482 482 to discuss your complaint in confidence.
