Club statement - pyrotechnics
Supporter safety is a key priority for all clubs, and we at Airdrieonians Football Club are committed to doing everything we can to ensure that the matchday experience is safe and enjoyable.
One of the most dangerous things we have to deal with is pyrotechnics such as smoke bombs and flares in the stadium and we'd ask that you assist us by not bringing such devices with you to matches.
These devices can cause severe burns, damage to hearing, or breathing difficulties. Their use is especially distressing for groups such as small children and those who can't easily move away when they are activated.
Please be in no doubt that pyrotechnics are unsafe and potentially life-threatening. They are also illegal at football matches and being caught in possession will result in a ban from Airdrieonians Football Club as well as a possible criminal conviction.
