The FA introduced on Wednesday that chants of “Rent Boy,” directed at Chelsea followers by rival supporters, at the moment are thought of a breach of its guidelines.
It has written to all Premier League golf equipment and golf equipment all through English soccer to implement the purpose and try and stamp out discriminatory conduct.
“The ‘Rent Boy’ chant is intolerable and has no place in football or anywhere else,” Chelsea stated in an announcement. “That opposition clubs can now face disciplinary action if their supporters engage in this discriminatory and offensive behavior is a step in the right direction. Everyone who chooses to participate in this chant must know their actions have consequences.”
There have been allegations of the chants being made in latest Chelsea video games.
“The Football Association strongly condemns all offensive, abusive and discriminatory chanting in football stadiums and is determined to stamp this behavior out,” the FA stated. “These chants can have a lasting and damaging impact on people and communities within our game, and it must stop.”
