CLUB STATEMENT

23 October 2019

The club is investigating reports of alleged racist abuse directed towards a Bradford City supporter, prior to last night’s Sky Bet League Two game against Port Vale.

City officials have this morning made contact with the alleged victim’s family and, alongside local authorities, will be conducting an inquiry.

The incident occurred on Manningham Lane in the build-up to kick-off, last night, and the club is appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Ryan Sparks, City's director of communications, said: "We are disgusted to hear of this incident and will do everything in our power to identify those alleged to have been involved.

"Racism has no place in society and we treat all forms of discrimination with the utmost seriousness.

"We as a club have been working closely with the Bradford Hate Crime Alliance and Bradford Council.

"Over the weekend, we supported the #BradfordNoPlaceForHate campaign and play our part in a host of diversity and inclusion projects and initiatives.

"Bradford is a proud, multi-cultural city and racism is absolutely unacceptable. We would urge anyone who witnessed last night’s incident to come forward and contact the club. This can be done anonymously."
