Chelsea ban season ticket holder indefinitely for racist abuse
Following an inquiry into an alleged racist remark made during the most recent 2-2 draw with Tottenham, Chelsea has stated that they have given a season ticket holder an indefinite ban.
When a supporter was seen that day at Stamford Bridge making a racial gesture toward Son Heung-min of Spurs, Chelsea wasted no time in launching a formal investigation.
The fan in question, a season ticket holder, has now been identified and is no longer permitted to attend games, according to a club statement.
“Chelsea Football Club finds any form of discriminatory behaviour totally abhorrent. It has no place at Chelsea or in any of our communities,” the club said of the incident.
“Chelsea FC has consistently made its zero tolerance position on discriminatory behaviour very clear, yet there are still idiots like this that attach themselves to this club as so-called ‘fans’, which shames Chelsea FC, our coaches, players, staff and our true supporters.”
