Boxer Anthony Ogogo was racially abused after watching Norwich City FC in their Tuesday night cup tie vs Arsenal FC at the Emirates Stadium.
The Canaries supporter was told to ‘Go back to your own country’ by a fellow Norwich City supporter who suspected him of being an Arsenal fan.
Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) send their full support to Anthony and praise him for highlighting the incident. Here at SRtRC, we believe that if racism is not reported it will only continue to be expressed in both covert and overt ways. We would also like to praise Norwich City FC for their proactive response to this incident. As stated Norwich City Football Club take a zero-tolerance approach towards racism and discrimination of any kind. The campaign has worked with Norwich for many years and we know first-hand the vital work they do to make the Football Club, and Carrow Road, an inclusive and welcoming environment.
