Newcastle United Fans Top Football Arrests League

8 years ago

While the top five finish of 2011/12 may now be a distant memory, last season saw Newcastle United actually top a Premier League of a different kind.

In the latest Home Office report on football arrests, Newcastle United are clear top of the twenty current Premier League clubs.

The total of United fans arrested has risen to 175 from 73 the previous season, with the two Manchester clubs next in the list.

The chaotic derby at St.James’ Park contributes 29 Newcastle United arrests of the season total of 175.

Statistics in terms of banning orders as of September 20th 2013 show 58 Newcastle fans to have them, a figure which puts United sixth ‘top’ in that particular table.
