Safety at major sporting events


MPs are to examine issues around the safety of spectators at football matches and other major sporting events following the scenes and problems experienced by crowds at recent high-profile games.

The DCMS Committee inquiry will consider whether crowd management policies at stadiums in the UK are sufficient to maintain spectator safety and what steps can be taken to protect British supporters at major events abroad. The Committee will also examine the effectiveness of legislation concerning football, including the issues of safe standing and alcohol consumption at matches, and whether there need to be changes to regulations governing fans at matches.

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Thursday 8 September 2022.
