This week has seen a number of Barclays Premier League clubs decide to bar the controversial instruments from their stadia.

More could follow suit before the start of the season, but it appears supporters will be allowed to bring them to Wembley for the Community Shield on August 8.

Press Association Sport understands the FA will gauge the reaction to the playing of vuvuzelas before deciding whether to ban them for future matches, including England's home internationals.

The noise made by the instruments was a major talking point at the World Cup, with opinion divided over whether they added to or detracted from the atmosphere during matches.

Tottenham, Arsenal, West Ham, Birmingham, Everton, Fulham, Liverpool and Sunderland have banned them, while a number of npower Football League clubs have done the same.

The reasons given range from fears fans would be unable to hear safety announcements to concerns the trumpets will drown out chanting and singing.

The Premier League said during the World Cup that it would be left to individual clubs to decide whether to outlaw them.

Meanwhile, the Capello Index saga continued to rumble on this morning.

The FA confirmed Fabio Capello's representatives were still working to remove the England manager's name and image from the controversial website five days after it went live.

It is unclear whether Capello - who assisted in the formation of the Index, which publicly ranked players' performances in South Africa - is able to take legal action against the site's creators.

The FA said that would be a matter for the Italian and his representatives.
