FA urged to act after alleged homophobic chants at Chelsea vs West Ham

Anti-discrimination organisation Kick It Out have reported allegations of homophobic chanting by West Ham fans to The Football Association following their match against Chelsea on Saturday.

The Chelsea Supporters’ Trust tweeted on Saturday evening that they had noted “with dismay the continuous homophobic chanting by visiting West Ham fans” and urged both clubs to investigate.

West Ham’s LGBT+ Supporters’ Group reminded the Hammers supporters that the chants were homophobic and by targeting Chelsea fans, they were abusing “all gay fans”.

On Monday, Kick It Out revealed in a tweet they have received “numerous” reports of chanting directed towards Chelsea fans during the Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge.

A statement read: “We have received numerous reports of homophobic chanting directed at Chelsea fans during their match against West Ham United on Saturday.

“We have informed The FA, and reiterate our message: the ‘Rent Boy’ chant is homophobic and must be treated as such.”

Both clubs have issued statements strongly condemning the alleged actions of the fans, with West Ham pledging to celebrate its work with the LGBT+ community at its next home match against Arsenal.

In a statement, West Ham said: “West Ham United in no way condones any behaviour that falls short of the highest standards which the club sets when it comes to equality.

“At London Stadium against Arsenal on Monday night we will be celebrating and demonstrating the great work the club does to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for ALL supporters, including our LGBT+ fanbase, as part of our ongoing and unwavering support for the Rainbow Laces campaign.”

A Chelsea spokesperson said: “Just as we criticise our own supporters when they have been guilty of discriminatory behaviour, we expect other clubs to stand up, speak out and do the same.
