Barnsley Football Club is disappointed to learn that during Tuesday evening’s Sky Bet League One fixture against Bristol Rovers, a section of supporters participated in a chant of a discriminatory and derogatory nature.
This is totally unacceptable and Barnsley FC condemn any behaviour of this manner. The Club prides itself on providing an inclusive, family friendly environment.
The Barnsley FC family has a large following of female supporters, staff, players and board members and we reiterate that football is a game for everyone.
Barnsley FC has made contact with Bristol Rovers, Her Game Too and the EFL regarding this matter and will immediately commence an internal investigation.
As a Club, we do not want anyone visiting Oakwell to have a negative experience due to the actions of fellow supporters. If ever you see or hear discrimination at or during a Barnsley FC fixture, text us in confidence – 60777, start your message with “ALERT”.
