    The club was accused by UEFA after a group of fans got involved in anti-Semitic singing during a 2-2 draw in the Europa League against the Hungarian Vidi in December 2018. They took strong action against their fans – beyond to run several educational campaigns.

    “Chelsea Football Club will conduct a full investigation into the matter as soon as we can see the video,” read a note. ‘At this point it is not clear to us if Chelsea fans are involved.

    “However, if an individual with discriminatory behavior in the video is identified as a season ticket holder or member of this club, we will take and support the strongest possible actions against them, in line with our zero tolerance approach towards all forms of discrimination. This behavior does not reflect in any way the values ​​of this club.

    “No club has done more than Chelsea FC to fight anti-Semitism.”
