Football hooligans receive 109 years in total of banning orders after violent disorder at Leeds Elland Road

Birmingham football hooligans known as the “Zulus” have amassed 109 years in banning orders after a brawl with Leeds United fans.

The battle initially started in the West Stand towards the end of the match inside and later outside the ground for 45 minutes on October 19, 2019, where stewards and police officers were attacked by the away supporters, who threw punches, coins and traffic cones at them.

This came after the fighting kicked off in the West Stand where police and stewards attempted to separate brawling supporters.

After the unsavoury battles, Leeds police force stated ‘Operation Bandshot’ and scrawled through hours of CCTV footage to identify those involved in the violent scenes.

The officers joined forces with West Midlands Police with a series of appeals being launched, featuring images of the suspects. It led to 29 people, mostly Birmingham fans, identified and charged with violent disorder.

Detective Superintendent Jaz Khan, Head of Crime for Leeds District, said: “These were some really ugly scenes of violence and the worst crowd trouble to be seen at Elland Road for more than a decade.

“Although only a relative minority of supporters of both sides were involved in these incidents, their behaviour had a significant impact on on-ground staff and police officers as well as other fans and families attending the game.

“Large-scale violence such as this will always be the subject of a thorough and comprehensive investigation, and we set off on many months of painstaking analysis of what had occurred, with the clear aim of identifying those responsible and bringing them to justice.

“Genuine fans, regardless of team loyalties, had no hesitation in condemning what took place, and the support of the public played a huge part in the success of our appeals. We worked closely with our colleagues at West Midlands Police to arrest the majority of the suspects in a series of dawn raids.

“The prison sentences and lengthy banning orders they have now received should send a very clear message to those who think they can involve themselves in similar disorder in and around football games without having to face the consequences.

“Behaviour such as theirs is completely unacceptable and has absolutely no place in football where people should be able to support their teams positively in a safe and trouble-free environment.

“What also really stands out is that the vast majority of those involved have little or no previous involvement in football hooliganism yet have rightly received significant punishments from the courts that demonstrate how these offences simply will not be tolerated.”

Whilst some cases are still to take place in court the current sentences and banning orders handed out are:

  • Michael Flint, aged 48, of Castello Drive, Birmingham – 10 months imprisonment suspended for two years, plus 120 hours of unpaid work and a four-year football banning order.
