How can our football banning order solicitors help?
We can help in a number of key ways. Football banning orders are regarded as a public order offence, but the situation is far more nuanced than that.
Once a Football Banning Order (FBO) has been issued, it can legally prevent you from being able to attend football matches or enter football stadiums. Not only is this restrictive of your movements, as it will often prevent the individual from even getting close to a football stadium, but it can also have unexpected additional consequences, such as preventing you from travelling internationally, should it be suspected that the reason for travel is to attend a football match.
In these cases, your order could even require that you hand in your passport to the police. Football banning orders are frequently lengthy, often lasting up to five years. In some cases, they also lead to a prison sentence, in which case the ban can be extended for 10 years.
If you have been given a football banning order, the National Legal Service can help. We’re here to ensure you better understand the crime you have been accused of and provide legal representation to fight the charge in court or in some instances, at the police station.
This flexible approach is ideal for those requiring help right away to attain the assistance they need.
