Notts Reaffirm Anti-racism Stance

21 December 2012

Notts County wish to remind supporters that the club take a zero-tolerance approach to any form of abuse or discrimination...

Notts County would like to reiterate the club’s zero-tolerance on racism and all forms of abuse, reminding fans that anyone found to be using any offensive or abusive language inside the ground will be removed and may face prosecution.

The Football Association recently wrote to all clubs in the Premier League and npower Football League to remind them of their responsibility to provide a safe and pleasant environment for supporters, free from abuse and discrimination.

In line with the club’s determination to stamp out all forms of discrimination, Notts are therefore reminding supporters that any such behaviour will not be tolerated at Meadow Lane, a venue that the club are keen to ensure is welcoming to all.

As part of the club’s on-going stance against such behaviour, stewards have been reminded of the need to be vigilant and to deal with any issues that arise in an affirmative manner.

Anyone found using foul or abusive language will be identified and removed from the ground, whilst those found to be using racist language also face the possibility of prosecution.

Fans who experience abusive behaviour at any home game are asked to report it to the nearest steward as soon as possible to help the club ensure that we remain a safe and pleasant environment for all supporters.

Alternatively, if you have any concerns raising from issues of abusive or racist behaviour here at Meadow Lane, please email in confidence.

Notts County are proud to consider ourselves a family club and we are determined to ensure that the work that has already been done to combat discrimination is continued to ensure that Meadow Lane remains as safe and enjoyable a venue as possible for all of our supporters.
