Premier League Clubs Ban Vuvuzela’s

Arsenal and Tottenham were among the first clubs to ban the noisy plastic instrument, which created its own legacy at the FIFA 2010 World Cup. It has been said that the plastic horns post a safety risk which will go against current health and safety regulations at many of the top flight's grounds.

Vuvuzelas - Banned?

Arsenal and Tottenham were among the first clubs to ban the noisy plastic instrument, which created its own legacy at the FIFA 2010 World Cup. It has been said that the plastic horns post a safety risk which will go against current health and safety regulations at many of the top flight’s grounds. Tottenham Hotspur, amongst other clubs said they enjoy the natural atmosphere that is created by the fans and don’t need a noise and communication distraction, which the notorious Vuvuzela causes!

Could Bloomfield Road be the home of the vuvuzela this season?

Blackpool, the newly promoted outfit to Premier League went against the grain and stated they would not be banning the instrument from their ground. A spokesman from the newly promoted Championship Club said: “Suggestions have been put forward that the vuvuzela would help intimidate visitors to our Seasiders’ Bloomfield Road ground following our promotion from the Championship.”

The vuvuzela may be the only way that Blackpool find silverware this season...

This is bound to create a major uproar with other teams and the English FA. Although I am a South African citizen and love the impact the vuvuzela has on any football stadium, I do believe Blackpool have a mountain to climb, with 19 other teams apposing the noisy plastic instrament.

Goodluck Blackpool, being a United fan myself I really would love to hear a vuvuzela penetrate the ears of the angry, travelling Arsenal/Liverpool and Tottenham faithful 😉

This lad is clearly not with Blackpool on this one. LOL

    Hi there

    I am currently researching the status of Vuvuzelas in Cape Town and South Africa at large.

    Thus far, all I’ve been able to find are articles pertinent to the 2010 World Cup Soccer and the various Soccer/Football Clubs either in support, or against, the Vuvuzela.

    Please could you clarify if Vuvuzelas remain in use, or are in fact banned and in particular, here in Cape Town.

    Many thanks for your response!
