Sports ground

This small professional football club holds 16 000, but on most match days the attendance is much smaller. The club has three all-seater stands and one standing area. It has over 100 uniformed stewards. Their role is to offer help to spectators and to assist the police in crowd control. There is a part-time safety officer who is responsible for all aspects of crowd safety and police liaison. Local police often allow matches to be played without their attendance. The policing role is then carried out by club stewards.
