Match-goers will not be able to take the sticks into the Emirates Stadium or White Hart Lane, but maybe not for the reason you might think.It’s not just that they’re extremely annoying and people have had enough, it’s because they pose a safety threat.An Arsenal spokesperson told the Camden New Journal: “We can confirm that selfie sticks are banned on match days at Emirates Stadium. The club’s ground regulations prohibit any object that could be used as a weapon or could compromise public safety.”Over at White Hart Lane, its customer care team emailed a Tottenham fan to say they had banned the sticks and “all stewards will be briefed prior to the next home fixture,” the BBC reports.The fan tweeted a picture of the email declaring victory.https://twitter.com/LiamCSWY/status/552806479032774656Although he did reveal his own reason for complaining to the club about them.https://twitter.com/LiamCSWY/status/552823627134279680Football fans will just have to get used to close-up selfies rather than panoramas and make do with taking shots the traditional way.The popularity of the selfie stick suddenly took off at the end of last year, with eBay selling two every minute over Christmas in the UK, however the novelty is clearly wearing off for some. whatsapp whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekBeverly Hills MDPlastic Surgeon Explains: “Doing This Every Morning Can Snap Back Sagging Skin” (No Creams Needed)Beverly Hills MDThe No Cost Solar ProgramGet Paid To Install Solar + Tesla Battery For No Cost At Install and Save Thousands.The No Cost Solar ProgramHero WarsThis game will keep you up all night!Hero WarsEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity Mirrorzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementIf Your Dog Eats Grass (Do This Every Day)Ultimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementPast Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.
