Football: Chelsea to consider sending racist fans to Auschwitz - reports


(Reuters) - Chelsea are considering sending racist supporters on trips to the Nazi death camp Auschwitz to tackle anti-Semitism at the club. Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck believes it is a step towards changing the attitudes of the supporters instead of imposing bans from attending matches at the Premier League club. Chelsea criticised a number of their own fans for anti-Semitic chanting against London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in September last year. Tottenham have historically had a substantial support base among London's Jewish community, and fans of the club have been targeted by rival fans with anti-Semitic chants for years. "In the past, we would take them from the crowd and ban them, for up to three years," Buck said of fans caught chanting racist slurs.
