Football clubs in Britain ban vuvuzelas

Arsenal joins Tottenham citing “safety and enjoyment”

The incessant buzz of the vuvuzela was part of the fun for many football fans at South Africa’s World Cup. Not so for the British Premier League, apparently. Tottenham FC announced Monday that it would ban the noisemakers from their stadium. Rival Londoners Arsenal copied the move Tuesday, saying the decision was taken to “ensure the enjoyment and safety of supporters.”
