Stadium Behaviour on Matchdays

As we approach the end of the 2023/24 season, Oxford United would like to thank the fans for their continued support throughout the season, while reminding supporters of the importance of their behaviour both in and out of the stadium.

The support you offer helps to create an incredible atmosphere up and down the country as you help spur the team to victory. However, we would again like to emphasise that the club will not tolerate any discriminatory and offensive language, while we also ask that you maintain our club policy when it comes to fan behaviour.

In recent home games, the club has seen a slight increase in incidents with individuals engaging in anti-social behaviours, such as using discriminatory language or being in possession of pyrotechnics.  

Oxford United takes a zero-tolerance approach to these behaviours. We would like to remind supporters at this crucial stage of the season for the Men’s First-Team that we do not condone such behaviours and we ask you to help us stamp out any offensive language and use of pyrotechnics. 

With Friday night’s game at home to Stevenage the final regular season match at the Kassam, we also like to remind fans to not enter the pitch at any stage, including after the full-time whistle, as the players and their families take part in a lap of honour to thank you for your overall support.

We repeat to fans that the club is proactive with sanctions such as using Acceptable Behaviour Contracts to establish agreed behaviours so that the fans, and the public, can continue to enjoy watching football safely.

In what is an exciting time for the football club as we look to reach the Sky Bet League One play-offs, we would like to ensure all supporters attending games both home and away feel they are coming into a safe and inclusive environment. These measures allow our supporters to enjoy the atmosphere and passion of an Oxford United match in a safe space.

Thank you again for your support and we look forward to welcoming you to the Kassam once again on Friday night.
