Derby County and West Ham supporters are asked to do their clubs proud as they head to Pride Park for the FA cup match on Monday.
We’re preparing to welcome thousands of fans to the city on 30 January, as the clubs enter the fourth round.
Our officers are working to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable evening, with the support of both clubs, British Transport Police and the Metropolitan Police Service as the teams meet for the first time in Derby since 2011.
PC Mike Turner, Dedicated Football Officer for Derby County, said: “We are expecting there will be a large crowd at Pride Park on Monday, and a brilliant atmosphere for this game, with the magic of the FA Cup bringing that extra little bit of excitement as both sides look to progress.
“Whilst most supporters will be there to enjoy the match, sadly there may be a small minority who may look to cause trouble and we will be taking action against anyone disrupting the match day experience for others.
PC Turner added: “We will be continuing to engage positively with all the fans at all football fixtures, but any behaviour of an anti-social nature or criminal inside the stadium or in Derby city itself, will be dealt with robustly.”
Regular updates will be posted from the @DCFCPolice Twitter account ahead of the game, which kicks off at 7.45pm.
