Bradford City Football Club are investigating reports of alleged racist abuse which occurred during yesterday’s Sky Bet League One game against AFC Wimbledon.

Ryan Sparks, City's Head of Media & PR, said: "In conjunction with West Yorkshire Police we have launched a full investigation after receiving reports of racist abuse directed towards local residents, who live nearby the Northern Commercials Stadium, yesterday.

"Racism has no place in society and we condemn any kind of hatred. The club treats all forms of discrimination with the utmost seriousness and we will be working with the authorities to identify those believed to be responsible of the alleged offence.

"Club staff will visit the families affected over the coming days and we will be assisting West Yorkshire Police with their enquiries.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank supporters and other eye witnesses who have come forward with information in relation to this incident.

“Those involved can expect to face serious punishment and a lifetime ban from attending Bradford City fixtures."
