Hate Crime & Football Arrests – The FiguresPeter Houghton
Figures have been released by the Home Office giving details of both hate crimes at our stadia and other arrests.
Burnley FC have the unenviable “top-of-the-league” position for reported hate crimes, while a match between Stoke City & Port Vale produced 62 arrests in a single event. I bet the custody Sergeants around the City were busy that night! Although Stoke City remain non-members of the FSOA, I’m delighted to report that Port Vale have re-joined recently and are now enjoying the benefits.
Take a look at the following press releases.
