Assessment of safety signage for visitor arrivals at football grounds are part of a new customer quality scheme announced by the Premier League and VisitEngland.

Every Premier League club will be assessed under the Visitor Attraction Quality Assurance Scheme, which has been tailored specifically with stadia in mind. The project aims to steer clubs into giving the best possible experience to fans.

Arrival signage is part of eight areas deemed important for the 13 million footy fans forecast to visit stadiums this season, and includes things like pre-arrival, match experience, catering, toilets and merchandise.

Richard Scudamore, the chief executive of the Premier League, said the strategy was timed well with England's ongoing 2018 World Cup bid.

"With the inspection visit for the 2018 FIFA World Cup bid under way this new VisitEngland scheme is a welcome reminder of the commitment that Barclays Premier League clubs have to ensuring that fans have the best experience possible."

The chief executive also said that since the league's formation in 1992 over £3 billion has been spent on ground improvements that have made English stadia amongst the best in the world.

It was also announced that new steward training would be developed to enhance visitors' experience further still.
