Warrington Wolves release damning statement following attacks on supporters’ coaches and RFL punishment

Warrington Wolves have now released a statement condemning the actions of some of their support-base following the RFL’s decision to fine them.

The statement reads: “The Club have agreed to pay costs of £3,000 for the damage done to visiting supporters’ coaches after our Round 2 home fixture against Castleford Tigers on February 17 – with an additional fine of £2,000 imposed for failing to adopt appropriate measures in controlling the behaviour of spectators. The fine is suspended until the end of the 2023 season.

“The Club has since taken subsequent preventative actions at every home fixture since to counteract any potential anti-social behaviour. However, a small selection of supporters have continued to cause issues on match days which have been flagged to our attention and, following investigations, resulted in bans.

“We would like to remind supporters that flares and smoke bombs are strictly prohibited at all stadiums. Any fan caught in possession will be ejected and a subsequent ban issued. The presence of sniffer dogs will be around the ground at Thursday’s Betfred Super League game against St Helens due to this.

“At away grounds we kindly remind supporters they are representing the club and should respect the ground regulations at our fellow Super League club’s stadia.

“Monetary fines are hugely damaging for the club along with the impact on our reputation within the game.

“We thank our fans for their support and ask for cooperation as we strive to make The Halliwell Jones Stadium a safe place to enjoy the greatest sport of all.”
