The FA releases statement on abusive chanting
The FA has released the following statement in relation to yesterday’s match at White Hart Lane between Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United.
‘The FA can confirm it has begun investigating reports of abusive chanting at the Tottenham Hotspur FC versus West Ham United FC fixture on 25 November 2012.
The FA Governance Department has this morning contacted both clubs and will continue to make enquiries into the matter in the coming days.
We note the statement issued by West Ham United FC and encourage clubs to identify and ban for life any individuals involved in incidents of abusive chanting.
There is no place for antisemitism or any form of discrimination in football. The FA is committed to working with the clubs, Leagues, fans groups, the police, CPS and community stakeholders to play our part in addressing this unacceptable behaviour.’
