The NJA commends Arsenal for launching an investigation it was reported that two female fans were verbally abused by a group of men who called them “dirty f*****g Yids”.
The victims of this incident, Arsenal fan Katie Price, 26, and her friend Lily O’Farrell, were abused while visiting The Cally pub in north London.
The Premier League club has also launched a concurrent investigation into a second incident that took place during the game, in which antisemitic comments were made towards an Arsenal fan.
The NJA will continue to follow these investigations closely and hopes that their findings will result in justice for the victims. The NJA reiterates that there should be zero tolerance for antisemitism in sport – whether on or off the field.
