The authorities have presented new measures aimed at clamping down further on hooliganism at football matches.
The accord between cantonal governments or cities and the football association specifies who is responsible for security in and around stadiums, stipulates the measures that have to be taken and in particular apportions the costs.
The plan includes restrictions on the sale of alcoholic beverages, the installation of surveillance cameras, the deployment of police observers and extending a hooligan database.
Clubs will have to draw up a concept to stop the use of fireworks and flares among spectators and prevent acts of violence and racism.
Karin Keller-Sutter of the St Gallen cantonal government as well as Peter Gilliéron of the Swiss Football Association stressed the importance of a violence-free environment at football matches.
“We work together to improve security, reduce violence and costs,” Keller-Sutter told a news conference on Friday.
The accord, which builds on an agreement reached last November, is to serve as a model for accords between the political authorities and individual clubs.
