Chelsea Football Club has issued a life ban to all the 5 individuals who were involved in the Paris incident before Chelsea faced Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League game on 17th February 2015.
According to the statement published on the official Chelsea site:
“Chelsea Football Club has today issued life bans to five individuals involved in incidents prior to the club’s UEFA Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain on 17 February 2015.
This follows Stratford Magistrates’ Court’s decision to issue multi-year football banning orders to Richard Barklie, Josh Parsons, William Simpson and Jordan Munday. Dean Callis earlier received a banning order.
The club will always reserve the right to decide who purchases tickets to attend Chelsea matches, and the behaviour of these five individuals was abhorrent, against all of the club’s values and falls way below the standards the club expects of supporters attending our games.
Therefore, the club’s bans permanently prohibit any of these individuals from attending Stamford Bridge or purchasing tickets from the club for any future matches. “
There’s no place for racism in football or anywhere else for that matter. The life ban to all these individuals who embarrassed Chelsea Football Club and England on 17th February 2015 should serve as an example to everyone.
Although, I would say that some bad characters don’t define our club. We are a proud community who support this club with all our heart and we are committed to eradicate discrimination in all its forms!
KTBFFH! Let’s kick racism out of Football!
