Stevenage FC ban vuvuzela
Supporters banned from bringing instrument to matchdays
Stevenage FC have wasted no time in jumping on the ‘anti-vuvuzela’ bandwagon by banning supporters from bringing the instrument to the Lamex Stadium on matchdays.
Health and safety concerns are the reason behind the club’s decision – although it is not clear exactly what these concerns are.
Premiership side Tottenham Hotspur were the first club to ban the vuvuzela and it is expected that many other league clubs will follow suit before the start of the season in August.
If clubs deem the South African horn unsuitable for football matches – where does that leave other instruments like the trumpet, the drum and the rattle which have become synonymous with the football terrace?
