Salford Red Devils are set to launch an initiative with supporters to create a charter governing acceptable behaviour at the AJ Bell Stadium.
Preliminary analysis of the recent digital survey highlighted growing concerns among supporters towards a tiny minority displaying anti-social behaviour, and the Club have taken this information very seriously.
Over the coming weeks the Club will be reaching out to fans and asking them to get together to shape the family-friendly environment that they are asking for.
With this in mind, following incidents at the Challenge Cup game v Hull KR the Club has now banned two supporters from the stadium. These supporters have been notified that they are no longer welcome at the AJ Bell Stadium with immediate effect.
A spokesman said: “The findings are extremely interesting, our fans have told us that they are fed up with having to tolerate the anti-social actions of a tiny minority and that they feel their unacceptable behaviour is a factor in keeping supporters away.
“At a time when we are actively working to increase our audience it’s clear that our supporters want us to give them the tools to turn the AJ Bell Stadium into a family environment.
“We want you, the fans, to dictate what behaviour you deem to be acceptable around your families and children. These kids are our legacy, the supporters of the future and what you decide now will directly affect the safe and enjoyable way they get to view the game in the coming years.
“After events at the Million Pound Game and scenes at Huddersfield Giants last season, pictures of which went around the world and tarnished our name, the Red Devils’ Fan’s Charter will be the first step for our loyal audience to show this minority what they believe to be acceptable behaviour in this stadium.”
