MOPAC recovers the full cost of providing policing services to football matches for policing provided on land owned, leased or controlled by the relevant club.  Under present law, MOPAC is not able to recover costs for any additional policing outside this 'footprint'.

 

My Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime has made representations to Government about this.
