By Staff

Three Arsenal fans have received bans from attending matches after tragedy chanting during the 3-1 win over Liverpool in January, the club have confirmed. The supporters will each be exempt from attending games for three-years.

“We strongly condemn this abhorrent behaviour,” a statement on Thursday night reads. “We have worked closely with the police to ensure swift action was taken and we welcome the football banning orders handed out.

“We have a zero-tolerance approach to tragedy chanting and will always ensure strong action is taken against those found guilty of such behaviour.”

The decision has been confirmed under a football banning order from section five public order offence, which relates to the tragedy chanting.

Earlier this week two Manchester United fans were arrested in connection with tragedy chanting after their FA Cup quarter-final win over the Reds.

“We are aware of the reported tragedy chanting during today’s FA Cup fixture between Manchester United and Liverpool, and we will be liaising with and supporting Greater Manchester Police,” an FA statement says.

“We strongly condemn any offensive, abusive and discriminatory chants in football stadiums, and we are determined to stamp this behaviour out. It is entirely unacceptable and can have a lasting and damaging impact on people and communities within our game. It must stop, and we support any club and their fans who try to eradicate this from the terraces.”

Arsenal beat Liverpool on Sunday, January 7, 2024, in the third meeting in the space of four weeks.
