The match organiser and relevant police force must agree on the structure of command and control for the event and ensure that this is clearly documented outlining the circumstances, if any, when control of the stadium transfers from stadium management to the police.


In cooperation with the public authorities, the match organiser must ensure that there are stewards and private security to ensure the safety of the general public and the match participants within the stadium and its immediate environs. Where required, police should be available to support stewards and private security to counter any outbreaks of violence or disorder.
