Football figures - 1045/17

Date Responded 19 January 2018

Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')

As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of access to information held at the time of a request, by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.

You asked:

Can you please confirm the actual attendance for the Sunderland vs Cardiff City on the 23rd September 2017.

In Response:

We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention.

 As the information you have requested is accessible by other means I have not provided you with a copy of the information and will rely on Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.  You should therefore consider this a refusal for your request.

 I have provided an explanation to this exemption below.

 Section 21 (1) - Information accessible by other means

 Information which is reasonably accessible to the applicant is exempt information.

 The Football Clubs are responsible for recording and publishing their own attendances.

Attendance figures are routinely published by the Football clubs and can be found by simple research.
