    Booze ban for Sharks fans

    Durban - According to the Mercury's website, Durban authorities have warned that rugby fans caught drinking in the outlying areas of Kings Park Stadium will face arrest, as police step up efforts to enforce existing liquor legislation banning the consumption of alcohol in public spaces.

    Officials have made the decision to clamp down on public alcohol consumption and ensure compliance of the Liquor Act following the death of rugby fan Brett Williams, who was brutally beaten to death by outside the stadium.

    Rugby fans could face arrest for having alcohol in their possession outside of legal areas.

    Fans will still be able to purchase and consume alcohol within clubs and bars and designated areas in and around the stadium.

    KZN Liquor Board chief executive officer Stella Khumalo said Kings Park had a Sports Ground licence allowing it to sell and supply liquor, and allowing patrons to consume it only in the stadium and not in the outlying areas.

    Khumalo warned that the liquor inspector would be monitoring the area closely.

    Police spokesperson Thulani Zwane issued a warning to fans visiting Kings Park.

    "Anyone found in possession of or selling or drinking alcohol illegally will be arrested and we urge supporters to behave themselves and enjoy the beautiful game," he said.
