Statement From Nottinghamshire Police

3 May 2013

‘No ticket, no travel’ is the message for football fans ahead of tomorrow’s East Midlands derby.

Tickets for the Nottingham Forest v Leicester City match have sold out and Nottinghamshire Police are warning Foxes fans not to make the journey if they don’t have one.
 
2,000 Leicester fans will occupy the away end but the Force also believes some fans may have bought home stand tickets.
 
Along with both football clubs, they are warning fans to be on their best behaviour or face the likelihood of an arrest or possible ban.
 
Violence and nuisance behaviour will not be tolerated at the game.
 
Superintendent Mark Holland said: “If you don’t have a ticket to the game then don’t travel to Nottingham as you’re likely to miss the match and there are no facilities for the game to be shown on television screens.
 
“If you are lucky enough to have a ticket then please be aware that there will be high police visibility at the ground, and anyone causing football-related violence will face arrest.
 
“The dispersal of crowds under the Antisocial Behaviour Legislation is still in force and will be used if necessary.
 
“However we are hoping that fans from both teams will rise above the rivalry and just be a good sport by enjoying the game.”
