Which is the most racist football club in UK?- London clubs dominate the list

Racism continues to be a problem in football. Despite the emergence of footballers in England from all parts of the world and all ethnicities, there still seems to be a lot of unawareness and ignorance on the matter. It’s still not uncommon to hear racist chants at football games in Europe.

Premier League has taken a lot of steps to curb it, with the Kick it Out campaign. But ignorance never truly seems to eradicate itself from the minds of some fans. Here, we look at which team is the most racist football club in UK.

Measuring clubs on the basis of racism is next to impossible. There isn’t really a set criteria for that. No one gets points marked against their names for each racist act they commit. But there are some clubs that have become notorious for their consistent racist behaviour.

Chelsea are one club that have really made a name for themselves in this arena. The London-based club has some of the most ignorant fans around, be it in Stadiums or online on Twitter. One infamous incident that comes to mind is when their fans did not let another Black Chelsea fan onto the train in Paris during the time they were primed to take on PSG in the UEFA Champions League.

Millwall is another club filled with ignorant, racist fans that have basically made their club’s name popular just because of their acts inside and outside the stadium. It is wrong to paint all their fans with the same brush and we do recognize it. But just any Londoner of their opinion on them and you’ll understand what we mean.

If we consider arrest made due to racist behaviour by a club’s fans, Manchester United top the list when we consider a sample size of a number of seasons. Between 2014 and 2018, the Red Devils had 27 arrests of their fans related to racist behaviour.

Leeds United are joint-second with Millwall on 15, with Leicester City toppling Chelsea by one arrest. These numbers would have changed by now, but these numbers are from a fairly recent time and give a reflection of what kind of bad eggs these clubs possess within their fanbase.
