In a new crackdown, football fans who use drugs at games will be banned for five years.

Fans who bring drugs to football games face a five-year ban from all stadiums.

A crackdown will be announced this week in the wake of mounting evidence that cocaine-addled thugs are fueling a spike in stadium violence.

Ministers are expected to act after statistics revealed that the number of fans arrested for disorderly conduct increased by 50% in the first half of the season.

Football authorities blamed cocaine for the embarrassing scenes at last July’s Euros final between England and Italy at Wembley Stadium.

Since then, more than 800 people have been arrested on league grounds for missile throwing, pitch incursion, and hate crimes, as well as 100 for drug possession.

Cops fear that cocaine will overtake alcohol as a cause of match violence after fans have been seen snorting it in their seats.
