Newcastle Fans Receive Most Banning Orders
Newcastle United fans received the highest number of banning orders last season in England and Wales, dwarfing supporters of other clubs, fresh figures have revealed.
There were 95 banning orders imposed on supporters of the Premier League team in the 2013/14 season, Home Office data revealed.
Fans of League One side Chesterfield received the second-highest number of banning orders at just 22, while League Two side Shrewsbury Town saw 21 bans issued to its supporters.
The total number of football banning orders decreased by 7% to 2,273 as on September 3 2014, from 2,451 on September 20 2013.
This represents 678 new banning orders imposed during the period, on top of those already in place.
Football banning orders aim to block potential troublemakers from travelling to football matches - both at home and abroad - and are issued by the courts following a conviction for a football-related offence or after a complaint by the Crown Prosecution Service or a local police force.
