Los Angeles Sports Council Announces New Code of Conduct

In an effort to create a more secure and enjoyable game-day experience for fans at local sports events, the Los Angeles Sports Council, in cooperation with sports venues, area teams, and law enforcement agencies,Monday announced the creation of the Southern California Fan Code of Conduct that has been approved by the Council’s recently created Task Force on Fan Behavior.
The Task Force, which includes representatives of all local sports venues with a capacity of 10,000 or more, developed 10 easy-to-understand guidelines intended to foster a comfortable and safe atmosphere for spectators. Although most venues and teams already have their own codes of conduct, this is the first time a common code, which can subject violators to ejection or arrest, will apply to multiple sports facilities in the region.
“This will not replace any existing codes of conduct but is intended as a streamlined, fan-friendly version whose rules will apply to all professional and collegiate sporting events at our larger venues,” said Sports Council President David Simon. “Breaking any of these common sense rules may subject violators to ejection or arrest.”
Each venue will be responsible for disseminating the code of conduct to its fans. The Task Force plans to produce a video utilizing local celebrities in support of this effort.
Here is that Code of Conduct:
The [Name of Team and/or Name of Facility and/or Los Angeles Sports Council] supports the area’s outstanding collegiate and professional sports teams. In order to ensure a safe and celebratory environment, we ask that fans refrain from the following behavior at all events:
Profanity or other offensive language, whether spoken or appearing on apparel, Smoking, other than in designated areas, Intoxication or excessive alcohol consumption, Bringing prohibited items into the venue, Throwing of items or liquids, Entering the playing field or court at any time, Fighting or other threatening behavior, Failure to retain ticket and/or present it to event staff if requested to do so, Resale of tickets at the venue, Violation of state or local laws Failure to comply may subject you to ejection or arrest.
