Manchester United fans could be banned from The Valley for August’s Barclays Premiership clash with Charlton.
The south-east London club have detailed a catalogue of incidents allegedly involving United fans, who they claim have caused trouble at The Valley in three of the last four seasons.
Chief executive Peter Varney warned last season: “I would rather have the away end empty than run the risk of further incidents.”
Senior Charlton officials will meet next month with the police, the local council and the Football Licensing Authority to discuss what measures to take for the August 22 fixture.
Six United supporters were arrested at The Valley last season.
Supporters surged forward as they celebrated a goal from Ruud van Nistelrooy, breaking a metal gate and allegedly injuring a steward before some spilled onto the pitch.
Charlton report that all stewards were then withdrawn from the stand after “being pelted with broken seats and spat upon” as they attempted to restore order.
Charlton have also detailed incidents of alleged sexual abuse on a female member of staff and physical assaults allegedly perpetrated by United supporters.
Charlton reduced United’s ticket allocation last season because of the fans’ determination to remain standing throughout the game.
The fixture was also attended by the largest number of security staff and stewards of any home game in Charlton’s season, but they still encountered problems.
Varney explained: “We have a number of options to consider, and obviously uppermost in our thoughts is our desire to minimise problems in the ground on the night.
“The safety of all fans is our paramount consideration, and obviously we are very aware of the troubles we have experienced with United fans in recent years.”
