These pose a safety issue and can also obstruct the views of other spectators.
Therefore, with regret the stewards have been briefed not to allow them into the stadium.
Supporters wishing to take photographs are also asked to make themselves familiar with the Stadium Rules and Regulations, in particular item 17, which are posted at all turnstiles and can also be found on page 33 of the match programme.
This states that "…only persons authorized in writing by Club management are permitted to film or take photographs for commercial gain, distribute without charge or offer for sale any item, article, raffle ticket or thing whatsoever within the Club grounds…"
The Club has been made aware of photographs from Gloucester Rugby home matches being made available for distribution free of charge via websites such as Flickr and, in some cases, made available for sale. This is in breach of our regulations.
The Club does not object to spectators taking photographs for personal use using camera phones or basic digital cameras.
However, cameras with a detachable lens will be viewed as being of professional spec and spectators using such devices will be asked to stop.
