English Premier League Banned Vuvuzela - But Why ?




Oh, vuvuzela. What the heck is Vuvuzela ?


"The vuvuzela (pronunciation: /vvˈzɛlə/), also known as lepatata 
(its Tswana name), is typically a 65-centimetre (2 ft) plastic device that 
requires the flow of air to produce a loud monotone note, 
typically around B3[1] (the B below middle C).[2] 
A similar device, known as the corneta, is used in Brazil and other 
Latin American countries. Many types of vuvuzela, 
made by several manufacturers, may produce varying intensity and 
frequency outputs. The intensity of these outputs depends on 
the blowing technique and pressure exerted."

Since the last biggest football event, World Cup the Vuvuzela has been so famous. Vuvuzela is a traditional instrument for African peoples. Also in football, which is you guys can see hows happening the Vuvuzelas in World Cup in South Africa.

But, why the English football not allowed this instrument to be played on EPL ? This is because Vuvuzelas have got nothing to do with English football. In fact, they would damage our tradition of communal singing. In the hands of Africans, they represent decent musical entertainment.

"In the hands of Europeans, they amount to nothing
 more than a deafeningly mournful wail. The vuvuzela 
has its place in football culture but it belongs in 
African grounds. Not in ours."

**Arsenal, Tottenham, West Ham, And Birmingham, also banned Vuvuzelas to be palyed in their Stadium.
