This article will cover what you can - and can't - take to away grounds. Drums? Flags? Anything else you should be aware of?
We are contacting all the clubs to ask them some questions based on what members have told us about things they'd like to know in advance.
If there is anything you think we should add to the list of things we ask about please let us know on [email protected].
The list below is in Alphabetical order.
Flags and banners shouldn't obsure advertising hoardings and other signs.
Four clubs have now specified that flags with poles are not allowed. I'm not entirely sure that a flag is still a flag without a pole but this is understandable.
Dagenham and Redbridge quite reasonably pointed out that they reserve the right to refuse to allow any item on the night if it is considered by their stewards or police that it might be used as an offensive weapon. The BFCSA Committee think it is fair to say that all clubs also reserve this right. (We also wondered what an inoffensive weapon might look like.)
Comments are generally pasted from the club's reply. Where comments are ambiguous we have decided to leave them alone rather than put our own interpretation on them and risk misleading you.
Details of BFCSA coaches to away games.
We're unlikely to ever play Borussia Mönchengladbach but it's worth noting that their website has guidance on what visiting supporters are and aren't allowed to take into the stadium. For example, flags are allowed but only if their poles are no longer than 1.5m. They also offer storage rooms for forbidden items. It is interesting to note that dangerous missiles can be stored in these rooms, but not motorcycle helmets.
It's also worth noting that (according to Wikipedia) their mascot is a bumble bee called Bach.
