The English Football League is urging all football supporters planning to go to the play-offs at Wembley next week to be '...vigilant, stay alert and not be alarmed.'
“The thoughts and prayers of everyone associated with the EFL and its 72 Clubs are with all those affected by last night’s terrible events in Manchester.
“The EFL is fully aware of the security issues that football and other sporting events currently face and whilst there have been no specific threats in this country, our Security Advisor will be liaising with Wembley Stadium, the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) and the Metropolitan Police to ensure the arrangements in place provide a safe and secure environment for all supporters attending this weekend’s Play-Off matches.
“The safety of fans remains our highest priority. The EFL takes security issues extremely seriously and we would urge all supporters planning to be at Wembley Stadium to be vigilant of their surroundings at all times, stay alert and not be alarmed.”
