Club Statement

Birmingham City has been made aware of a reported incident of racism during this afternoon’s Sky Bet Championship match versus Peterborough United.

A complaint of racist abuse from visiting supporters was made to the referee, Jarred Gillett, by a Peterborough player during the match at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Two supporters have been arrested and are in custody. The Club will continue to assist the Police in their investigations and firmly support the action taken against anyone found guilty of such abhorrent behaviour.

We reiterate our zero-tolerance policy towards any form of discrimination. Football’s rich history is built upon and stronger for its diversity.
