Smoke No Joke Campaign

Nick Shaw - 6th August 2015

Smoke No Joke Campaign Woking Football Club fully supports the National League’s new Smoke No Joke campaign to reduce and eradicate the indiscriminate use of flares, smoke bombs and pyrotechnics at matches.

Flares and smoke bombs disrupt play and people’s enjoyment of games, and the toxins they contain can seriously damage health and/or cause life-threatening injury or concern.

We have been directed to take the strongest action available against anyone found in possession of a Flare, Smoke Bomb or any other such pyrotechnic article(s), and spectators are warned that we and The National League apply a zero tolerance approach to anyone attempting to bring such article(s) into The Laithwaite Community Stadium.

Due to their chemical make-up, a Flare, Smoke Bomb and all such pyrotechnic article(s) can lead to serious health consequences for those with pre-existing medical conditions.

In order to protect all supporters, we reserve the right to search your person and/or effects, and we further reserve the right to pursue legal action, civil or criminal, against any person who contravenes current legislation or our stadium regulations.

To further safeguard all who attend any event at The Laithwaite Community Stadium, we welcome the receipt of any information which will assist us to deter, apprehend, detain and, where appropriate, prosecute anyone in possession of, or found discharging or being a party to the discharge of, such an article.

Courts have a sentencing guideline of three months’ imprisonment and a three-year football banning order. Those prosecuted face not only a criminal record and imprisonment but also many future difficulties, including restrictions on travel overseas.

Please support the Cards safely and responsibly this season.
