Supporter behaviour

Wednesday 28th June

As the club prepares for a return to the European stage on Thursday, we would just like to take a few moments to highlight the importance of supporter behaviour at the games.

Saints fans have a great reputation for following their team. We have had no trouble at home or away games in Europe and the club has little doubt that our fans will enjoy Thursday’s home leg against FK Trakai in a responsible manner as will those who travel to Vilnius next week.

Nevertheless, our supporters will be aware that the club has fallen foul of UEFA on previous occasions – in 2014 we were fined 18,000 Euros when one supporter briefly waved a Palestinian flag and we were previously censured when a young supporter ran onto the pitch in celebration of a goal.

Both legs of the tie will be in the presence of UEFA Delegates who will report any issues back to the governing body and any breaches will likely hit the club hard financially.

So, please – keep it noisy, keep it colourful but keep it within the bounds of what is allowed and absolutely no pyros please!
