Important supporters reminder

8 February 2024

The Owls are reminding supporters of their conduct whilst following the team home and away.

This season and last has regrettably seen unsavoury and unlawful incidents involving Sheffield Wednesday fans resulting in FA investigations, one of which remains ongoing.

Following the Peterborough play-off semi-final second leg at Hillsborough in May 2023, the club were fined £50,000 for crowd misconduct.

Whether on or off the Hillsborough footprint, supporters should remain within regulations and the law at all times.

The following acts are offences under the Football (Offences) Act 1991:

- The chanting of anything of an indecent or racial/discriminatory nature.

- The entry onto the playing area or any adjacent area to which spectators are not generally admitted without lawful authority or excuse.

- The throwing of any object within the ground without lawful authority or excuse.

We have published regular reminders together with club statements to this end and it should be stressed that SWFC and our supporters are subject to the full criteria of sanctions in the event of breaches.

As always, we urge everyone who follows Sheffield Wednesday to respect EFL Ground Regulations and underline that although a minority, supporters who behave otherwise will face not only club sanctions but also the full force of the law if necessary.

Thank you for your cooperation.
