After the violence that occured prior to Swindon Town's match against Bristol Rovers last weekend, Swindon Town ahve released the following statement in regards to a possible groundshare.
Swindon Town Statement
The Board of Directors of STFC are deeply concerned with regards to the incident last Saturday in Bristol prior to the Town's match against Rovers.
It goes without saying that unprovoked and mindless acts of violence of this nature are totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated by this Football Club.
Those who purport to be football supporters that attack innocent men, women and children enjoying a day out can only be described as despicable and deplorable cowards.
Consequently the Board would like to assure the Club's fans that, before any commitment to a 'Ground Share' with Bristol Rovers is considered, this matter will be thoroughly explored.
To date the Board have had initial discussions with the police in Swindon and Bristol, plus the Safety Advisory Group has been consulted, and Swindon Borough Council has been informed of the possibility of a Ground Share.
If this 'Possibility' progresses to a 'Probability' the Club will take the advice of the Police, the Safety Advisory Group and the Council plus consult with the representatives of the Club's supporters and the local community before progressing the issue further.
Finally the subject of safety at football matches is paramount and Board would like reassure the supporters of the Club plus our County Ground neighbours that this will naturally take precedence over any commercial gain.
