Our Stamp It Out campaign aims to raise awareness of the corrosive effects of anti-social behaviour in our communities, explore the causes and highlight what is being done to tackle the problem, urge people not to engage in the crime and call on residents to play their part by reporting it.

“It is important that our supporters feel able to report in confidence any instances of anti-social behaviour that they witness so we can take any necessary action.

“We run a series of initiatives throughout the season that allow us to engage with families, school children and parents alike.

“When we run these initiatives we see a significant increase in matchday ticket sales in our family area and it is down to us to do enough to make sure they come back.

“We are building a fan base for the future.”
