All Premier League clubs have given their consent on a set of measures that will be put in place to combat several anti-social behaviours

On Wednesday, all Premier League clubs came to a mutual agreement to implement a set of fresh measures aimed at addressing anti-social conduct such as chanting, gestures, graffiti, and online harassment related to tragedies.

At their yearly gathering, the clubs agreed to implement actions that concentrate on legal action, the governing conditions, policing, teaching, and messaging.

In December, a working group focused on football was established to investigate ways to oppose and address the acceptance of such conduct and occurrences.

“The issues have continued to cause significant distress to the victim’s families, survivors and affected-club supporters, in addition to damaging the reputation of the clubs involved and football in England and Wales,” the clubs said in a statement.

A supporter of Tottenham Hotspur was prohibited on Tuesday from participating in matches for three years and was penalized for making gestures that ridiculed the Hillsborough stadium tragedy during Spurs’ match against Liverpool in April. 

The 25-year-old was accused of deliberately causing harassment, alarm, or distress and pleaded guilty. 

The specifics of the new regulations will be revealed before the season begins as part of the Love Football, Protect the Game initiative that was launched last year.
