BBC - Football-related arrests in 2008/09 decrease by 2%
In total 354 fans were arrested for football-related violence
The number of football-related arrests in England and Wales fell last season, according to Home Office figures.

In the 2008/09 campaign, police made a total of 3,752 arrests at domestic and international football matches, a fall of 2% on the season before.

On average there was 1.18 arrests per game, and the Home Office say 354 people were arrested for violence.

In all, 956 football banning orders were issued during the 2008/09 season, with 37 million people attending games.

In the Premier League, champions Manchester United had the most fans arrested - 185 in total.

Second was relegated Newcastle United with 144 arrests and third was Everton with 139. Fulham had the fewest fans arrested with just 13.

Supporters of League One Leeds United topped the banning order list, with 162, ahead of Championship side Cardiff City (124) and League One outfit Millwall (110).

Fans were generally well-behaved abroad - more than 105,000 fans travelled to 49 games in European club competitions last season but only 30 were arrested.

"Hooligans once blighted our national game but we now set an example for the rest of the world in how we police football matches," said Home Office minister David Hanson.

"I am pleased with the way clubs and police work together but we must also praise fans for realising violence has no place in the modern game.

"We are not complacent and will carry on working to ensure this success story continues into the future." BBC
