Football banning orders are a preventative measure designed to stop potential troublemakers from travelling to football matches - both at home and abroad.
The Home Office says that of the millions of fans who annually attend football games, only a very small minority actually cause problems.
It says that those that do cause problems are a threat to public safety and to the UK's reputation overseas, so it says it is committed to stopping this behaviour.
Banning orders are issued by the courts following a conviction of a football-related offence, or after a complaint by the Crown Prosecution Service or a local police force.
