The Club recognises the role that large stadium banners can play their part in adding colour and vibrancy to matchdays. The use of these have been encouraged over recent years and the club recognise the amount of effort and money that has been raised to make these happen. Selhurst Park has a unique atmosphere and we want this to continue but not at any cost.
The use of large banners has to be balanced with the safety of all spectators in the ground which has been and continues to be the club's number one priority.
With immediate effect the following rules will apply to any individual or group who wish to bring a banner into the stadium:
The Club safety officer will have to be notified by email at least five days before the match with details of the size of banner, its content and how it is proposed to be displayed.
The banner itself must be totally compliant with all safety regulations including fire retardancy with certification and its content must not be offensive in the opinion of the club.
The installation and removal of the banner will have to be fully risk assessed to avoid any risk to fellow supporters.
Any supporters putting up any unauthorised banners will face a club stadium ban.
The club will assist wherever it can to make the use of banners possible but recognise that putting supporters safety at risk is simply not an option.
