Could you please tell me for the 2016/17 football season:
- how much SYP spent policing matches at each of the following clubs, and
- how much was received from each club towards the cost of policing.
Sheffield United Sheffield Wednesday Doncaster Rovers Barnsley FC Rotherham United FC
If possible, could you also please tell me how much is budgeted for policing those club's home games this season, and what plans are in place for policing the two Sheffield league derbies (eg number of officers, cost, contribution from clubs).
I contacted the Finance Officer within our Joint Specialist Operations unit for assistance with your request. She has carried out a search for the expenditure and income received from Clubs for the football season 2016/17. I have been provided with the following
COST TO POLICE
Money received from Club
Actual cost to SYP
The Finance Officer advised that the budgets for the current football season are still being finalised, therefore are not held at the moment.
