The HJS Virtual Event Series: 'Antisemitism in Football' - Monday 29th Nov, 3pm-4pm (GMT)
Antisemitism is a blight across the European continent. For decades, anti-Semitic chants have been heard in many of Europe’s football grounds, usually met with little objection. Spanning the continent, from the designation of Ajax as a Jewish club to anti-Semitic slurs in Hungarian football stadiums, this scourge must be fought.
This societal ill can also be found in the UK. Only recently, Daniel Levy, Tottenham Hotspur’s club chairman, was met with anti-Semitic slurs on a radio broadcast that went unaddressed by the presenter of the station. Meanwhile, the Premier League only adopted the IHRA of antisemitism in December 2020. The problem of antisemitism within European football seems to be an everlasting one, and more needs to be done by leagues across Europe to clamp down on this concerning development.

This panel will address this trend, hearing from MPs, footballers, and those who work exclusively to curb antisemitism in their stadiums.
