Chelsea want to combat anti-Semitism at Stamford Bridge by sending supporters on educational trips to Auschwitz instead of handing out bans.

Pockets of the Stamford Bridge crowd are known historically for their racist chants which are aimed at Tottenham Hotspur supporters, who are known for their large Jewish following.

In the past, many of us have witnessed Nazi salutes from the home end along with fans making gas noises in relation to the mass genocide Holocaust during World War II where some six million European Jews were murdered, equating to around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe.

Now, Chelsea’s owner Roman Abramovich is according to The Sun, the leading force behind the initiative where their club will give them the choice of education courses OR the loss of their season tickets, rather than handing down a banning order.

The report also claims that staggeringly, Chelsea will cover the cost for the fans to make the trip to Poland.

Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck said: “If you just ban people, you will never change their behaviour.

“Now we say ‘You did something wrong. You have the option. We can ban you or you can spend some time with our diversity officers, understanding what you did wrong’.

“It is hard to act when a group of 50 or 100 people are chanting. That’s virtually impossible to deal with or try to drag them out of the stadium.

  1. Being a lifelong Chelsea fan I am disgusted and embarrassed by some of the racist muck that comes from a section of our fans and anything that could change this has to be applauded

  2. Firstly, a really slow (and ridiculously understanding) response to a problem which has made Chelsea supporters notorious at White Hart Lane. I am amazed Chelsea adopt such a placatory attitude to these racists, having been so critical of Spurs supporters use of ‘Yid’ chants. Will a well-known ‘publicity shy’ comedian now respond?

  3. It’s really hard to get into the brains of these racists but trying to explain to them they should not use the term yids is very hard when it is so commonly used by Tottenham fans. It’s a culture thing and I’m pretty sure Tottenham have got enough of their own idiot ultra right wing fans, some of which I witnessed at last years semi-final,middle aged men who seemed more intent in having a ruck with any available Chelsea fans than watching any football

  4. I’m not sure the use of the y word is racism to be fair but more a dig at Tottenham whose own fans adopt the y word freely – messed up. The quicker Tottenham clamp down on this the more they lead from the front and tackle the problem at source
