Club Statement

03 January 2019

The Chelsea fan ejected from the Amex at the recent Premier League meeting between the two clubs, for shouting homophobic abuse, has been fined £965 and banned from attending football matches for three years.
 
He pleaded guilty to the offence of using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour to cause harassment, alarm or distress at Brighton Magistrates' Court earlier today (Thursday 3rd January).
 
A spokesperson for Brighton & Hove Albion added, "We would like to thank Sussex Police for their assistance in dealing with this unsavoury incident, and we are very pleased with the outcome.
 
"It underlines both their and our commitment to a zero tolerance policy on any form of abuse from those attending matches at the Amex. We would remind all fans that we will not tolerate any form of abusive behaviour at the stadium and will always take the strongest possible action."
 
On behalf of Sussex Police, football policing officer Darren Balkham added, "This was a great example of the stewarding and policing operation at the stadium taking action when incidents occur.
 
"Mr Bradley pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity and accepted his behaviour was not acceptable and this was recognised by the court.
 
"I would urge any supporter attending the Amex to report these incidents to either a steward or police officer to allow us to take action at the time."
