The 20 Premier League clubs have committed to a league-wide ban on anybody banned by an individual club for violent, threatening and abusive behaviour.
Recent events have increased the attention upon the Premier League and how they combat abusive behaviour, which includes racism and homophobia.
The new initiative means that anyone banned by an individual club would be prevented from attending matches at every club in the Premier League, which shows the firm stance that has been adopted by the league.
A statement from the Premier League said: “At today’s shareholders’ meeting, Premier League clubs united against all forms of violent, threatening and abusive behaviour.

“Following recent events, the 20 clubs committed to introducing a league-wide ban for anyone banned by their club for discriminatory, abusive or violent acts.
“Unacceptable conduct towards players, fans, club employees or referees will not be tolerated by the Premier League or its clubs.”
The announcement follows several from the Premier League today, including the start date of next season and transfer window changes.
