    Staying safe when going to a Premier League game

    The new Premier League season is underway and thousands of us are looking forward to climbing onto the terraces and supporting our favourite teams. While going to the football on a Saturday afternoon is a great English tradition, it can also pose risks and it’s worth taking a few health and safety guidelines into consideration to avoid accidents, such as slips, trips and falls when you go to a match.

    Staying safe at a Premier League game

    The Premier League is one of the world’s finest football leagues and it attracts crowds of thousands of people week in, week out; while this is great news for those seeking a lively atmosphere, it can cause problems related to health and safety. A large number of people in a confined space can increase the risk of accidents, such as slips and trips, especially if people are hurrying or it is raining and the stairways and aisles are slippery.

    If you’ve got your tickets and you’re counting down the days until match day, here are some simple tips to help you stay safe:

    • wear suitable footwear
    • take care when you are walking in crowds; look where you are going and avoid distractions, such as texting while you walk
    • take extra care when going up and down stairs and take your time
    • watch out for spillages and slippery floors; if you see a spillage, alert a steward
    • watch out for slip and trip obstructions, such as litter and clothing and bags under the seats

    Can I claim compensation if I’ve been injured at the football?

    If you’ve been injured in a public place, such as a football stadium and you believe your injuries were caused by negligence on behalf of the club, you may have a viable public liability claim. In order for your personal injury claim to be successful, you must be able to prove that you were not at fault and the club or firm, which owns the stadium, has displayed negligence, which resulted in your public place accident injuries; this may include failure to maintain walkways and seats, lack of compliance with health and safety measures or slips and trips caused by spillages, which weren’t cleared up or clearly marked with a warning sign.
