Towards the end of the 2021/22 season, we saw examples of stadium storms leading to unpleasant experiences for players and coaches in both the Football League and the Premier League. Especially what happened after the Everton-Crystal Palace match at Goodison Park has received a lot of attention.
Everton dramatically turned the game from 0-2 to 3-2 and secured a place in the League One in the penultimate game. Then the fans came off the hinges, and some showed threatening behavior in the direction of visiting team manager Patrick Vieira.
Merseyside FC can still get a penalty for what happened that night, and if similar scenes happen next season, there’s no point in asking for mercy. Indeed, the Premier League will put in place a number of measures to end track storms.

Premier League clubs meet this week in Harrogate, and promotion was among a number of issues on the agenda.
The First Division has teamed up with the Football Association and the EFL to present a business plan even before the start of next season.
Everton manager Frank Lampard made comments to Vieira after the match, but at the same time defended the fans who stormed the pitch, claiming it could be a good moment if done the right way. Statements have rarely been so well received by Premier League chiefs.
The Times wrote: “Clubs have been asked to pass that it is never acceptable to break into the stadium, and that this is criminal and could lead to disqualification from the stadium for several years.”
