AFC Bournemouth have issued the following statement regarding a 17-year-old who was yesterday (Wednesday) found guilty of chanting racist abuse at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in November 2019.
The statement reads: "AFC Bournemouth welcome the court’s decision to impose a three-year football banning order on a person present in the visiting section, following an incident at our fixture at Tottenham Hotspur last November.
"In addition to the court-imposed football banning order, this member of the public – who we refuse to acknowledge as a supporter – will also receive a lifetime ban from AFC Bournemouth.
"Discrimination has no place in any area of society and these actions have absolutely no place at our football club or among our fan base, either.
"AFC Bournemouth work tirelessly to create an inclusive, welcoming environment for all and we are disgusted and angered that this person acted in this way."
