Coronavirus (COVID-19)

How we are working to keep our FOI Requests running during COVID-19

Football Policing Payments (1903_15)


1. The amount received from each Football League and each Premier League football club in the force area to cover policing at football matches in the 2014/15 season.

2. The Football League season finished a month ago and the Premier League season finished on May 24. If any payments have not been received for the final games I would be grateful if the amount charged or to be charged could be provided to enable me to put a full season figure together.


Please find attached (1903_attachment_01.pdf).

Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from a number of data sources used by forces for police purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.

The figures provided therefore are our best interpretation of relevance of data to your request, but you should be aware that the collation of figures for ad hoc requests may have limitations and this should be taken into account when those data are used.

If you decide to write an article / use the enclosed data we would ask you to take into consideration the factors highlighted in this document so as to not mislead members of the public or official bodies, or misrepresent the relevance of the whole or any part of this disclosed material.
