10 years of arrests

10 years of arrests in football games

Let’s take a step back from the football pitch and have a look to what happens around it. Today I am starting a new series of blog posts about violence and disorder in football games.

The Home Office regularly publishes data about arrests and banning orders (that means people that are not allowed to attend to a match), so I have put together statistics between seasons 2003/2004 and 2013/2014 in order to create some charts. Hopefully, data for last season will be available in a few months.

In the following days we will see which supporters are more problematic when they are not playing at home, where are there more arrests for racist chanting and which crowd cause more violent disorders. But, today, we will just have a look to the big picture: which team has more supporters that have been arrested in the last decade? The answer: Manchester United. By far.
