Dear UK Sports Council (UK Sport),
I'm looking for information regarding the violence at football matches.
1.) How many arrests were made at professional UK football matches in the years 1970 and 2017-2018?
2.) How many arrests were made at amateur UK football matches in the years 1970 and 2017-2018?
3.) In both cases, is there a demographic breakdown of the arrests? i.e. percentage of men and women, between certain ages.
4.) Is there anywhere I can access statistics to do with arrests and violence at professional and amateur football matches year-by-year from 1960?
