Spectator safety

FINCIS is, for its part, responsible for implementing the international treaty on spectator comfort and safety in Finland. FINCIS aims to create a unified front of the sports movement and the authorities, which will improve fan culture and enhance spectator comfort, improve conditions and prevent personal injuries and property damage among sports spectators.

Spectator safety

Spectator safety is a joint effort between all participants in the event. Security personnel must ensure the safety and comfort of spectators, mainly through guidance and advice. Spectators are expected to behave appropriately, without unduly disturbing others. In Finland, safety at sports events is, in general, good.
