Action Welcomed After Supporter Ban

12 June 2018

Burnley Football Club has re-iterated its anti-racism stance after a supporter was banned from attending matches at Turf Moor, or any other ground, for three years after racially abusing a visiting player.

The supporter faced court action after information was reported to club safety staff by another fan and passed onto police.

A Burnley FC spokesman said: “This type of behaviour is not accepted at Turf Moor and we welcome the action of the police and the court in securing a banning order.

"The club maintains a zero-tolerance policy of discrimination of any kind and encourages supporters to report any incident that contravenes that.

“The club also positively promotes inclusivity and diversity and will continue to take action if offences of this nature occur at games in the future.”
