Pyrotechnics education toolkit

The SGSA has developed an education campaign toolkit to raise awareness of the risks associated with the use of pyrotechnics and to help ensure safety officers, their safety teams, staff, players and officials at clubs are fully aware of the responsibilities around pyrotechnics.

The document also compliments and reaffirms advice from the ‘Pyrotechnics in Stadia’ report published by UEFA in 2016.

The toolkit reinforces the following key messages, outlined on the pyrotechnics page:

If the illegal use of a pyrotechnic does take place, those who might attempt to deal with pyrotechnic devices should follow the three-stage approach:

  1. MOVE AWAY
  2. LEAVE THEM ALONE
  3. LET THEM BURN OUT

This campaign is supported by all members of a Pyrotechnics Working Group, made up of representatives from the EFL, FA, Football Supporters Association, Premier League and UK Football Policing Unit.
