FA to investigate West Ham anti-Semitic chants

The FA can confirm it has begun investigating reports of abusive chanting at the Tottenham Hotspur FC versus West Ham United FC fixture on 25 November 2011.

The FA Governance Department has this morning contacted both clubs and will continue to make enquiries into the matter in the coming days.

We note the statement issued by West Ham United FC and encourage Clubs to identify and ban for life any individuals involved in incidents of abusive chanting.

There is no place for anti-Semitism or any form of discrimination in football.
