What do you think of the proposed bus rules for football fans?

The “Guidelines for the Carriage of Passengers to Sporting Events in Scotland” would introduce a new set of policies for traveling supporters, bringing Scotland in line with England.

Buses would have to meet strict arrival and departure times, notify a dedicated police officer of their intention to go and would be forbidden to stop in pubs unless a “sufficient meal” was consumed in addition to alcohol.

Permission would have to be obtained to stop and pick up anyone en route, while those driving the bus would be required to notify the DFO of “any chanting expressing hostility based on race, ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation, expressing disability or transgender identity”. chants of an otherwise highly offensive or inflammatory nature that occurred on the voyage.”

The suggestion was as well received by the traveling fans as a dismal 1-0 defeat on a wet Tuesday night in Greenock – but is that a good idea?

We want to know; Is it time to better regulate traveling fans?

Suggestions from Scotland football away fans, slammed by Stephen Flynn

It’s not just fans who have reacted negatively to the proposals: The SNP’s Westminster boss Stephen Flynn has described them as “unworkable, unmanageable, unenforceable”.

However, Richard Turfitt, UK Transport Commissioner, said in the consultation: “These guidelines have historically applied to Scottish operators when carrying passengers to all football matches in England and Wales, but have not previously been applied to matches in Scotland.”
