BUNDES - Union Berlin fan banned for anti-Semitic abuse on Israeli club

Published on: 06 October 2021

Union Berlin said on Wednesday that one of their supporters has been banned for anti-Semitic insults directed at visiting Maccabi Haifa fans during a match in Berlin.

"There is no tolerance whatsoever for discrimination at Union Berlin," club president Dirk Zingler said in a statement.

"We have therefore taken all measures available to us to remove this person from our ranks."

After Maccabi Haifa fans were insulted by certain home supporters during Union's 3-0 win in last Thursday's Europa Conference league match, the police and European football's regulatory body, UEFA, are both investigating.

According to the Union, a culprit has been identified and has been banned from all club property and matches for a "indefinite" period of time. Police have also been informed of their whereabouts.

The German Football Association has also issued a "national stadium ban" to the same individual by the Bundesliga club (DFB).

Zingler thanked Union fans for their assistance in identifying the culprit.
