Notts County Reiterates Zero-Tolerance Stance On Discrimination

9 April 2015

In light of recent isolated incidents, Notts County would like to reiterate the club’s zero-tolerance stance on all forms of discrimination...

The club wish to make it clear that we will not tolerate any form of abuse towards anyone and will take the strongest possible action against anyone found to have been involved in any such activity.

Any supporter found chanting racial, homophobic, sexist or other form of abuse will not only be thrown out of the stadium but they will receive a banning order from the club and, where appropriate, the matter will also be passed over to the Police.

Notts County CEO Aileen Trew said of the club’s stance on this matter: “Notts County are vehemently opposed to any form of discrimination or abuse and have worked with organisations such as Kick It Out to help try and eradicate this ugly stain from our game.

“We will always look to take a hard line on any incidents of this nature and need to make it clear to our supporters and those of teams visiting Meadow Lane that this is just not acceptable and will not be tolerated.”

If you see or hear any racist, or homophobic chanting during any game here at Meadow Lane, we would ask that you report it to your nearest steward as soon as possible so that the matter can be dealt with in a suitable manner.

There is also an app that you can download from Kick It Out, which can be used to report abuse, further details of which can be found by clicking here.
