Statement: Racist incident in Paris

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The following is a statement from the FSF relating to the incident on the Paris Metro involving Chelsea supporters:

“This is a shocking incident and the overwhelming majority of Chelsea fans will be disgusted by it. There’s no place in society for this type of behaviour, and we back Chelsea FC’s strong stance.

“The FSF has zero tolerance for discrimination and we’ll continue to work with groups such as Kick It Out – with whom we run the “Fans For Diversity” campaign – to make sure football is a welcoming environment for all.”

In an unconnected incident, we are also seeking the views of Chelsea fans who may have experienced policing problems outside the stadium. For more, see here
