He pointed out that the move was being made to make sure that those set of supporters were informed with their worldviews instead of outrightly banning them.
“If you just ban people, you will never change their behavior,”
“This policy gives them the chance to realize what they have done, to make them want to behave better.”
“In the past, we would take them from the crowd and ban them, for up to three years.”
Chelsea will provide the supporters with the chance to be enlightened by attending the educational courses or risk the loss of their season-tickets at Stamford Bridge.
“Now we say ‘You did something wrong. You have the option. We can ban you or you can spend some time with our diversity officers, understanding what you did wrong,”
“It is hard to act when a group of 50 or 100 people are chanting. That’s virtually impossible to deal with or try to drag them out of the stadium.”
“But if we have individuals that we can identify, we can act.”
It can be recalled that the Club slammed some of its fans for aiming anti-Semitic chants at Tottenham in the course of a game against Leicester on September 2017. Tottenham Hotspur is a club that has a significant Jewish fan base. Click to read more on Abramovich..
