- There are no official deposits or similar arrangements available for leaving any object in the stadium therefore supporters are informed not to bring any objects with them that could risk being refused entry into the stadium.

If a firework, Bengal light or torch is lit inside the stadium compound, Police will intervene and arrest any person linked to such an infringement.
