Wakefield issue five banning orders


25th July 2013

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have issued indefinite banning orders to five men after crowd disturbances during their game with Widnes Vikings earlier this month.

The club issued a statement today to say that in co-operation with their matchday security team and Sky Sports, they had identified those they deemed to be responsible for the trouble.

Wakefield have banned the men from purchasing tickets for any of their games and have circulated their images to the Rugby Football League and other Super League clubs.

"Banning people from the stadium is not something we ever want to do, but it is imperative that supporters of all ages can come to watch games in a safe and enjoyable environment. We won't allow people to tarnish the reputation of our club and the sport as a whole," said general manager Davide Longo.
