As part of its ongoing commitment to combating discrimination and promoting equality and diversity, Southampton Football Club is proud to have joined the Premier League in adopting the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s working definition of antisemitism.

Both Saints and the Premier League are part of the latest organisations to recognise the working definition, which states the following:

Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred towards Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.

The definition, which has been formally adopted by the governments of the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Hungary, the United States of America, the European Parliament and more than 30 other countries, will be referred to in key areas moving forward such as the club’s Supporter Charter and Dignity at Work Policy.

The club does not tolerate discrimination of any form and is constantly looking to ensure St Mary’s is an inclusive and welcoming environment for all. It has set-up a a number of ways in which supporters can report any abuse they experience or witness, details of which can be found by clicking here.
