FSF STATEMENT: AMEX STADIUM INCIDENT

"It's clear from witness accounts and video footage that a number of Crystal Palace fans 'stormed' the turnstiles at the Amex Stadium on Tuesday night.

"There is no excuse for such behaviour and the FSF condemns these actions and reiterates our anti-pyro stance. 

"Many of the fans who reported this to us are match-going Crystal Palace fans with tickets who fear that they will suffer the consequences of such behaviour.

"That can be at future fixtures via reduced away allocations or on the night of the game due to additional policing measures as happened on Tuesday.

"We are concerned at the number of ordinary, peaceful fans who are coming forward and saying they had tickets but were denied entry. They deserve answers and recompense too.

"Any fan in that position should contact the FSF."
