CLUB STATEMENT ON ALLEGATIONS OF RACISM AT WOLVES MATCH

11 August 2014

Norwich City and police to investigate

NORWICH CITY can confirm the Club has received a number of complaints from its supporters about an incident in the away end at Molineux during Sunday’s Sky Bet Championship match against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Following allegations of racist behaviour by two or three supporters, the Club is passing our evidence on to police and asking them to investigate the matter further.

In addition to and separate from the outcome of any police enquiries, the Club will ban any supporters we are satisfied are guilty of racist behaviour from Carrow Road for life.

The Club has a zero-tolerance policy on racism and other forms of discrimination and will always ban anyone found guilty of such behaviour from our ground.

We are committed to being a responsible member of our community and passionately believe that football should be a positive, inclusive sport which everyone can enjoy watching and playing.

The vast majority of our supporters are a credit to this football club and the county of Norfolk and we would like to thank the many Norwich fans present at the game who brought this matter to our attention and to the attention of the safety staff at Molineux so promptly.

This ‘self-policing’ is a vital and welcome assistance to safety staff and police, as clubs and fans work together with the relevant authorities to eradicate discriminatory behaviour.
