Football (Offences and Disorder) Act 1999

Section 6: Domestic football banning orders

19.This section replaces section 30 of the 1986 Act.  One of the effects of the section is to change the name of “exclusion orders” to “domestic football banning orders”.  The section places similar duties on the courts to those mentioned in connection with section 1.  In addition, the Crown Court is given the power to make such orders in cases where persons are committed for sentencing.  This brings section 30 into line with section 15 of the 1989 Act.
