Union bans fans for disgraceful language after win over Fire

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Philadelphia Union defeated the Chicago Fire on Wednesday night at Subaru Park in Chester, Pennsylvania. At some point during the game, there was an incident with several ticket holders for the game.

It’s not clear what exactly what was said. However, it’s believed to have been a racial slur.

“The Philadelphia Union is committed to fostering an inclusive environment, free of discrimination and harassment,” the team said in a statement. “The disgraceful language and behavior exhibited by a small group of people at our game last night has no place in our stadium, or in society. It will not be tolerated.

“We have begun identifying those ticket holders, and they will be permanently banned from all Philadelphia Union matches and events.”

The team is not playing around anymore. These fans were not following the team’s ‘Sons of Ben’ Code of Conduct.

The ‘Sons of Ben’ Code of Conduct says, “Be loud, Be Proud, Be Smart, Be Passionate – If you can’t express your anger at the referee, opposing players on opposing supporters without using violent, sexist, racist, or homophobic speech and gestures, then don’t open your mouth.”
