Representatives from Tottenham Hotspur will be meeting with members of an anti-racism group to discuss ways to eradicate anti Semitism from football.

Spurs will be meeting with members of the Kick It Out campaign and the Metropolitan police next week to discuss measures which can be taken inside and outside the stadium.

The club hopes to discuss the views of fans in relation to discrimination in the sport and has given its support to a survey for fans to carry out as part of a consultation.

Spurs have given their backing to the Kick It Out campaign which is conducting the survey and covers areas including how to improve reporting of abusive behaviour, stewarding in stadiums and combating abusive behaviour on social media.

The announcement comes after The Society of Black Lawyers said it would report chants of ‘Yid army’ by Spurs fans to the police if the club did not take action.

The group says the chant is anti-Semitic and has called for Spurs to take swift action or the group will make an official complaint to police for investigation and possibly prosecution.

Those interested in taking part in the survey can do so by visiting the Spurs website.
