Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many incidents of crime and disorder have been reported for each of the last ten years at (a) professional football matches; (b) screenings of professional football matches in venues whose prime purpose is not the screening of such matches; (c) performances of live music at venues whose prime purpose is the performance of live music; and (d) performances of live music at venues whose prime purpose is not the performance of live music. [HL2870]

This information is not collated centrally. Information on crime is recorded on the basis of the offence rather than the location of the incident.

The Home Office collates data on football-related arrests, inside and outside of football stadia, publishing the information annually. Published data for the past five seasons are available at http://www.homeoffice. gov.uk/crime-victims/reducing-crime/football-disorder/.

Football-related arrest totals dating back to 2000-01 season is included in table five of the 2007-08 season published statistics.
