The Britain-based Premier League is revamping its security measures as a result of the attacks at the Stade de France that was part of a series of attacks that killed over 100 in Paris.

The Stade de France, France’s national stadium, was a main target of the ISIS terrorists who struck with three suicide attacks around the facility on November 13.

The English league announced that it is consulting with security advisors to devise a new strategy in the hopes of preventing any similar attacks on their own stadiums and sports arenas.

“We are actively engaged with our security advisers and the appropriate authorities, including the Home Office and senior representatives from the police, to assess current security guidance to Premier League clubs,” the league said in a statement.

During an upcoming meeting, league officials plan to release its briefing on the rules to the 20 member clubs and will spend the next few months developing the new security plan.

“There is a club meeting later this week where a full security briefing will be given. Following that, further guidance will be issued to the clubs as well as a public statement so fans are fully aware of what to expect when arriving at stadiums,” the statement added.

At least four people, including the three terrorists, were killed by the suicide attacks outside the Stade de France on Friday.
