MATCH FILMING & PHOTOGRAPHY
The EDFL will only permit approved media outlets and suppliers to take photos and film matches at all EDFL Finals venues. Any photographers or videographers who are not wearing the official EDFL Media Coloured Vest will be asked to cease their activity immediately or risk being ejected from the venue. All Media Vest requests are to be referred directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As the 2019 EDFL draws to a close and finals are underway, we have been asked to make contact with you and advise you that Police will be monitoring all finals games and targeting anti-social behaviour and drivers under the influence of drugs and or alcohol. Police will also be monitoring training sessions and official club functions and break ups.
We are seeking your assistance in promoting responsible crowd behaviour and the responsible serving of alcohol to patrons. Please encourage your members to use Uber, Taxis or utilise public transport and not drugs should they be consuming alcohol. Increased drug and alcohol consumption, a surge in gambling and people watching the game in close proximity to others with emotions running high are all contributing factors to a rise in violence.
We want to work with clubs to create a safe and fun environment for all fans to come to and enjoy the football.
If you have any particular concerns or would like any further information on the Police role during the finals series please do not hesitate to contact me. Good luck with your finals campaign.
