After a Wolves player reported hearing racial slurs, a spectator to the Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers game on Sunday was detained and ejected from the venue.

A Wolverhampton Wanderers player claimed to have received racial remarks from someone in the Main Stand during today’s game, according to a Palace statement.


“Our security staff promptly removed the guy from the stadium, where he was seized and arrested,” said the statement. “The Met Police, The Premier League, and matchday officials were informed. Police are currently looking into him. Naturally, we will participate in both that investigation and our own.

We express our deep regret that this situation occurred today and extend our sympathies and support to the Wolves player.

“As a club, we have no tolerance for any kind of racism or discrimination. Both society and football should not tolerate it.

In a statement, Wolves said: “We are very disappointed to hear that during today’s game against Crystal Palace, one of our players was the object of discriminatory abuse by an opposing fan.

“We immediately informed Crystal Palace, the Premier League match center, and the matchday officials of the event.

Crystal Palace security removed the errant supporter quickly and called Selhurst Park police.

“We have given a formal statement to the Metropolitan Police and are providing the player in question with all of our support.

“Discrimination or racism in any form is wholly unacceptable and must never go unchallenged.”
