is either a public service vehicle or a vehicle adapted to carry more than 8 passengers (i.e., mini – bus) and;

Coach Operators are reminded to keep to the following new guidelines when carrying supporters to and from football matches: -
1. Coaches are not to stop within 10 miles of the venue either on route to or from the event unless prior agreement is obtained from the local Police Liaison Officer.
2. Unless directed otherwise by a Police Officer, coaches may not stop at premises where intoxicating liquor is sold unless it is sold as ancillary to a substantial meal.

The Commissioner has powers to attach conditions to Operators’ Licences in relation to journeys to and from football matches, but prefers to rely on co-operation between Operators and Police.
