UNACCEPTABLE CONDUCT

The Scottish Professional Football League have instigated an initiative on UNACCEPTABLE CONDUCT. This initiative makes it the responsibility of the club at both home and away games regarding the conduct of their supporters. This initiative came into being on 1 August 2007. The list of offences is extensive but includes disorderly conduct, damage to the fabric of a stadium, using threatening or abusive words towards any group or gender, colour or race, nationality, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, transgender identity or disability.

Also included are chants or songs of a racist, sectarian or of grossly offensive nature. There is no list of banned songs or chants but the Match Commander, SPFL Delegate, referee or the opposition club may report any of the above. Sanctions against the club can mean an official warning, a fine, ordering the game to be replayed or as a last resort the loss of points.

SHOW RACISM THE RED CARD POLICY ON RACISM

Racist taunts and abusive or threatening behaviour will not be tolerated. Supporters (home or visiting) will be detained by stewards if they are guilty of such behaviour and passed to Police Scotland in line with the club’s policy.

Season ticket holders detained for such a reason face having their season ticket removed.

For those spectators detained, the Club will consider imposing life bans from the stadium and passing their details to appropriate authorities.
