Police warn City and United fans about alcohol ahead of Manchester derby
5:10pm Saturday 21st September 2013 in News
GREATER Manchester Police is gearing up for the Manchester Derby, on Sunday, the Etihad Stadium, kicking off at 4pm.
Supt Stuart Ellison said: "The majority of fans in recent derby matches have behaved impeccably. They simply want to enjoy the game and I applaud their behaviour. Incidents of criminality and anti-social behaviour at football games are becoming the exception and this is testament to the behaviour of genuine fans in attendance.
"Anyone caught with alcohol on the streets within the alcohol exclusion zone, which covers Manchester city centre, and the vicinity of the Etihad Stadium, will have it confiscated. In addition, anyone arriving at the stadium under the influence of excess alcohol will be refused entry.”
