The Gnoll Spectator safety


Welcome to The Gnoll the home of the Welsh All Blacks. The safety of the spectator is
an important consideration in staging sporting events and one that Neath RFC
management takes seriously.

We do however need your cooperation in maintaining a safe environment and appreciate your understanding that bags will be searched when entering the ground and other security measures that we may need to implement e.g. asking you to open your coat on entry and/or searching. If you have any concerns regarding security, please speak with a Safety Steward who will report the matter to the Safety Control Room. We also ask that you assist us with the following:

  • Keep gangways on the terraces and in the stands clear at all times.
  • Do NOT go on the pitch except in an emergency or when invited e.g. pitch access at the end of a game.
  • Do NOT leave your children unattended and we ask you to prevent them from running around the ground.
  • When waiting for relatives or friends keep away from entry/exit points to avoid congestion.


Before a safety announcement, you will hear a two-tone signal (bing bong); this means a safety announcement is about to be made to either a section or the whole of the ground. Please assist us by following any instructions given either through the PA system or by the Safety Stewards.


During each event, Neath RFC provides medical cover for spectators. If you have a problem, please contact your nearest Safety Steward.


Copies of the Ground Regulations are displayed at each entrance and can be viewed here. Spectators who do not comply with these may be refused entry or ejected from the ground.
