The Football Safety Officer functions are all those activities that protect the safety of spectators during football matches, both in ordinary and extraordinary situations.

All the activities are regulated by laws and ministerial decrees, these range from identity/ticket control to guiding the public to their assigned location, from monitoring compliance with guidelines (including through the CCTV system) to safeguarding the athletes.

The regulations are implemented through structural interventions on stadium facilities and the organization of a prepared team of operators (stewards) trained to ensure safety conditions during the event.

All these actions are essential to improve "security”, which ultimately lies with the Police.
