Anti-racism campaign group Kick It Out has revealed their support for an investigation after Nottingham Forest fans were caught chanting homophobic slurs.
Nottingham Forest fans taunted Chelsea fans during Saturday’s 2-0 FA Cup third round victory for the home side at Stamford Bridge.
Information about the incident was sent to the Football Association who will open up an investigation into the matter.
According to Sky Sports, Kick It Out released a statement supporting the potential investigation saying: “We’ve received reports of alleged homophobic chanting by Nottingham Forest supporters at Chelsea during the FA Cup fixture,” Kick It Out said in a statement.
“We have passed those onto the FA and offered our support in any possible investigation.”
This is happening a month after a Chelsea fan was fined £965 and banned for three years from football after he was found guilty of homophobic chants during the Blues’ 2-1 victory at the Falmer Stadium.
