Trust speak out over unacceptable homophobic chanting

The Trust has backed Cardiff City and the FA in efforts to end  offensive homophobic chanting ahead of the Brighton game on Tuesday.

More than a year ago fans of the Seagulls called for more action by the FA to address homophobic chanting in football grounds. The club’s fans have been subjected to homophobic chants due to the city’s connection with the gay community.

Trust chair Tim Hartley said: “We all love a bit of banter with the opposition but sometimes this crosses the line. Homophobic insults are not acceptable

“Brighton gave us a great welcome when we were down there at the start of the season. We can have a laugh with them on Tuesday without crossing that line between humour and abuse.”

Homophobic and racist chants are outlawed by ground regulations.
