Fan behaviour

Wanderers are backing a new football-wide initiative aimed at making all fans feel safe at matches.

The FA, Premier League and EFL are introducing stronger sanctions to tackle anti-social and criminal behaviour and underline the importance of a safe matchday environment.

Among the measures being introduced, anyone who enters the pitch and those carrying or using smoke bombs and pyros will now automatically be banned by their club.


Wanderers will be looking to upset five-times winners Aston Villa and reach round three for the first time 2018.
