The Yorkshire County Cricket Club has launched its Respect campaign for those attending fixtures at Headingley, Scarborough and York.

A special five digit SMS number, 60650, has been setup for spectators to anonymously report any anti-social behaviour that they have suffered or witnessed within the grounds. Text messages that are sent to this number will go straight to the security team to enable a quicker response time to any anti-social behaviour.

At Headingley, the text number will be displayed on screens around the stadium and promoted on all pre-match communications to spectators. The text line was first used at Yorkshire’s opening LV= Insurance County Championship fixture against Kent at Headingley and will continue to be available throughout the season.

Andy Dawson, The Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s Chief Operating Officer said: “It is important that we encourage a positive and safe environment where everyone is treated with respect, whether they are watching, playing, volunteering or working in cricket.

“Yorkshire has a zero tolerance stance and wants to ensure that there is an easy and confidential way of calling out inappropriate behaviour in confidence.”
