I wasnt sure of the rules... but :

Food and Drink
Soft drinks only are allowed to be brought into the stadium, however it must be less than one litre, in a plastic bottle and with a sealed lid. Strictly no alcohol is allowed to be brought into the stadium.

Yep... can see the security guys not being informed of this and chaos.

Still... be nice to see some passion from someone at Palace, even if it is from a guard wrestling a bottle of kia ora from a 6yr old.

Might go to the Chelsea game with the cpfc.co.uk webpage open on my phone so I can argue my case if need be.

What about the guy in front of me who has brought a flask into every game for years?

Didn't stavros69 try to bring a sandwich in once? And he wasn't allowed so ate it outside.

We have the hardest fans and stewards. Fact.

Once upon a time, you could take soft drinks, food and flasks in. They now stop that under grounds of 'elf and safety. If I was a cynical person, I would say more under grounds of boosting income. Oh I am a cynical person.

Sorry but we fans are getting ripped off across the board, it's shite.

I have type 1 diabetes and always carry a bottle of lucozade - every single time i enter a venue they try to confiscate it but always relent when i demand a bobby or the stadium manager to arbitrate :)

strange they never take my hip flask

Reminds me of Judith Hackitt, who attacked the Wimbledon tennis authorities for stopping Centre Court TV broadcasts when the grass is wet, on ‘health and safety’ grounds.

“I was particularly disappointed to discover that the LTA/AELTC chose to explain its decision to ban spectators from Murray Mount as being ‘on health and safety grounds’.

“There is nothing in health and safety legislation which prohibits the continued broadcasting of Centre Court action to the crowds on the hill during the rain.

“Health and safety is concerned with the proportionate management of real risks caused by work, not attempting to eliminate every minor risk from every moment of people’s lives.

“People have been walking up and down wet, grassy slopes for years without catastrophic consequences. If the LTA was concerned about people slipping and suing for their injuries, the message should have made clear the decision was ‘on insurance grounds’.

“Health and safety excuses are becoming as much a feature of the British sporting calendar as the rain. You will understand that, while we can do nothing about the weather, we will not let the excuses pass unchallenged.”

^ This, you're not cynical, it's absolute bollocks. Is anyone deluded enough to think that clubs actually care about their fans and think of them in any other way other than generating revenue? Football as we once loved it is almost dead.

That’s been the case for the last couple of seasons. You could bring soft drinks in before but they didn’t care for if the bottle was sealed or not.

I take my flask of tea in most games especially during the cold months, if that is ever taken away from me, it will be the end of supporting the club and football!

My 8 year old son had a non-sealed bottle of water taken off him before one game. What a ******* joke. The only reasons I could come up were either a) He was my alcohol mule or b) He was my bomb-making mule.

(Neither of which were the case, by the way)

Women make excellent beer mules, although they might also drink all of your beer on you

Can agree with this. I've been a season ticket holder since I was 21. I'm now 59, we've always taken a flask when it's cold and a few goodies to snack on, saves the finger nails when watching some of the dire dross that we have been dealt with over the years.

I got around the bottle ban by bringing in a daysack with a water bladder in. I need water for the drugs I take, and am not paying £2 for half a litre to take a tablet. Like you, I would ask the stadium manager or copper to intervene.

If they find my flask and ban me bringing it in, then yes, I think that will be the end. It will save my wife and I over £1,500 a season in season tickets and costs.

Since the premiershite came into being, it's eaten away at the heart of football. Small clubs are suffering because they aren't selling many of their stars on due to the influx of foreign players.

The clubs are bringing out new shirt every season, sometime three plus strips depending on the club.

I don't look forward to going at the moment and haven't for some years.

It's painful knowing that some of the shite players that we see are paid more than people who have a real impact on others and society.

Gone are the days when a professional football player could be living next door to you.

Really, should paramedics, firemen, nurses and doctors be paid less for the good they bring than the likes of Bakary Sako who needs a ladder to climb up to head a ball.

Why should different rules apply depending on where you are in the stadium?

I don't blame the guy, the tea and coffee in the stadium are shite.

Where's a proper barista when you need one?

It's gone downhill since they got rid of Bovril!!!

I have had to give up a bottle of water when I recently went and now drink before I go in. I even offer to take the lid off no, they insisted it had to be drank or thrown away. Am thinking off stashing it in my boots on Saturday lets see if they find it...lol

As long as the bottle of (non alcoholic) drink is sealed, you can bring it in.

That is more than at most clubs and grounds to be honest! Considering there is a Sainsbury's next to the ground, selling bottles of pop at half the price on the concourses, then its not bad at all.

Most away grounds you can't take in anything more than a Capri Sun juice pouch!

No hot food to be taken in? Then finish it outside before going in!

That’s a bit like football games being postponed due to safety issues around the ground of snow and ice.. the same ice and snow you have to walk on to get to a shop and work but nobody ever says you can’t do that for health and safety reasons

So is this new as water was taken off me at the last game although it was already open so it could have been a gin and tonic.
