EPL Clubs Consult Counter-Terrorism Police Amid Fears Of Matchday Attacks

Counter-terrorism police have been drafted to speak to Premier League clubs "amid concerns that stadiums may be targeted in the wake of the Manchester Arena attack," according to Mike Keegan of the London DAILY MAIL. A summit was held with every top-flight head of safety and security before the season. Officials "sat in on seminars" with experts who spoke about "issues including what safety measures should be introduced and what to do in the event of an attack." ManU, which was the first club to employ a counter-terrorism chief, has "now employed a head of security to work at Old Trafford." Rings of steel have been "put in place around a number of top-flight grounds including Old Trafford and the Etihad." The talks are part of a campaign to "ensure the safety of all the supporters who attend Premier League matches each week." A source said that clubs have also been "encouraged to share best practice with each other" (DAILY MAIL, 8/21).
