Club Statement: Racial Abuse

Following last night's European match against CSKA Sofia, St Patrick's Athletic have today been made aware that two of our players have been subject to racial abuse.

One of our players was sent racist messages on his personal social media account, while another was racially abused during last night's game, the abuse came from the away section at Tallaght Stadium.

We have reported these matters to UEFA, the FAI and SARI.

Club Chairman Garrett Kelleher said:

"We are appalled and disgusted by the vile racist messages and language that has been directed at our players.

St Patrick's Athletic is a multi-cultural, inclusive and welcoming club to all individuals, with a zero tolerance policy to racism and abuse of any kind.

The club has offered it's full support to both players, and we look forward to seeing them back on the pitch at Richmond Park on Sunday."
