Racism ban: A statement


WHUISA applaud the club’s decision to ban a fan for life after he was recorded on video making racist remarks, even if we believe education should be part of any punitive action.

Although the clip was taken around a year ago it was tweeted on Monday evening by Owen Price, the assistant manager with Southern Counties East League side Lordswood. We have no intention of reposting it here.

The club acted quickly to identify the unnamed person and a spokesperson said: “The individual concerned will be banned for life from London Stadium.

“The club is unequivocal in its stance - we have a zero-tolerance approach to any form of abhorrent behaviour.”

We believe this is a stance that does the club great credit and we look forward to further applications of the code.
