    cardiff allowed them in the twenty the other night, so did old trafford back in 2016 vs england, so why have some grounds banned them?

    Items like air horns, lasers of any nature, trumpets, drums, musical instruments, or similar items may cause a nuisance/disturbance to other spectators or players, I reckon. Therefore, not permitted to be brought into the stadium.

    How would you feel if a person sitting next to you will use a very powerful horn next to your ear?

    They're annoying enough on TV, can only imagine in real life at the ground itself...

    Deffo can’t take them at historical lord’s. You can prob sneak them in other grounds.. remember the T20 at old Trafford in 2016? Awesome phenomenal atmosphere with the horns.

    You will get searched in the ground but just hide them in your trousers and you will be fine.

    Every ground should ban them. I've sat next/near to people with horns in the past and it's total noise pollution.

    I remember a young toddler crying because a group of 30 year old teenagers were blowing their horns constantly and then laughing when asked to stop.

    That is why family stands exist. So you take your child there where there is definitely no alcohol or anything which can be really loud allowed there.

    Wait and Watch till our first game against the West Indies, Its sold out and those Caribbean fans will have drums, musical instruments and will without doubt create a positive and party like vibe for themselves to enjoy and show their team they are behind them and if they don't show it live on air I'll send pictures on here when I'm there.

    See if stadium managers were smart, They would make sure certain parts of the grounds fans are allowed to do this and advise if you have very young children too keep them away from there. But No, It's not about the fans and it never ever will be.

    Back to the thread - If you're going with a group or someone else. One of you go in first, Have whoever is with you throw your horn or whatever you have over where a steward or security cant see or are far away and you'll be okay. We did that all through the 2017 Champions trophy and didn't get caught.
