A Licensee’s Guide for the World Cup 2010

June 2, 2010

Pubs and clubs across the borough are gearing up for the 2010 World Cup, which is just around the corner. Due to the kick-off times, venues are expecting a large influx of customers, keen to enjoy the games in a fun atmosphere.

In the majority of venues, there will be no issues at all, but each Premises Licence holder and Designated Premises Supervisor needs to be aware of the potential risk involved when alcohol and football are mixed. Feelings can run high and what started out as a carnival atmosphere can end up in a brawl.

Every venue showing the World Cup is advised to risk assess their operation. Is there anything that can be done to make it safer? There’s no point taking a few hundred extra quid behind the bar if it costs you a few grand to repair the damage.

The British Beer and Pub Association have produced an advice guide for anyone running a World Cup event.
