Coronavirus (COVID-19)

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

Football Risk Category (5812/16)


The actual risk category is recorded at a local level by police forces after a match has been played and may differ to the predicted match risk category recorded on the central database which is not updated following a match. Therefore, we have not provided this data as any risk category data extracted from the central database is not definitive.

Please could you supply the actual risk category assigned to every match played by Aston Villa and West Brom during the 2015-16 season, with a key explaining your risk category system, AND the total amount paid by each of those clubs to cover policing costs. Please could the information be supplied in electronic form.


Please find attached our response.
