Barnsley FC strongly condemns all forms of discrimination and was disgusted by a video that circulated on social media, following the Sky Bet Championship fixture against Coventry City on Saturday.

Whilst the sickening gesture did not take place inside the confines of our stadium, the individual has been identified as a seasonal member and has been banned from Oakwell with immediate effect. The Club does not tolerate behaviour of this sort and individuals who display such mannerisms should not associate themselves with Barnsley Football Club.

Oakwell is a safe, welcoming place for all, regardless of race, religion, gender or sexuality.

We would like to thank members of the Barnsley FC family for highlighting this vile act whilst reassuring our community that we will continue to do everything we can to expel discrimination from our beautiful game.
