The English Football League has launched an initiative that would allow younger fans and families to attend football matches in a save environment.

A survey points out that 46 per cent of families attending matches is affected by swearing. Therefore, this and other abusive behaviour will be kept as far away as possible from family areas in the stadiums of participating clubs.

The campaign, dubbed ‘Enjoy the Match’, will also have managers and playing staff signing a pledge board to be displayed in family areas.

In order to limit negative behaviour, the Football League has proposed several other ideas from playing a public announcement by local children ahead of matches, to adding more stewards to family-save areas.

At campaign website www.enjoythematch.co.uk, fans are invited to show their support for the initiative.
