Use of the “G-word”

Last season the club began raising awareness about the use of the “G-word” in stadiums. This is a derivative of “Gypsy”, which is used at the end of a popular chant about our local rivals.

We are fully aware that our fans have been using this saying for several years and we are also aware that many of our fans view the word as “football banter” and “part of the game”. The word in question is racist, its use can be classified as a hate crime, and we will no longer ignore its use in our games.

Everyone, regardless of their background or beliefs, should feel truly welcome to be part of or connected to our club. Please help us to ensure there are no racist abuse on Vicarage Road.

I love football. Protect the game.
