Response to Police Scotland statement on Pyrotechnics
The SFSA recognises that that there are inherent dangers from the use of pyrotechnics at football matches. We also appreciate that only a very small minority of fans have any interest in using pyrotechnics and that safety concerns have been raised about this.
We are in regular contact with other fan organisations in different countries through our membership of Football Supporters Europe and we know that pyrotechnics is an issue across Europe. Different countries have taken different approaches to dealing with the use of pyrotechnics so we are keen to meet with Police Scotland to discuss, specifically, the matter in Scotland but to also share our knowledge of how it is being dealt with across Europe.
