Board of Deputies Vice-President Amanda Bowman has welcomed Tottenham Hotspur’s review of the Y-word survey it sent out to supporters in 2020.
Amanda said: “2021 saw a 139% increase in reported antisemitic incidents in professional football according to the CST Antisemitic Incidents Report out today. And so we welcome Tottenham Hotspur’s Y-word Review and its findings that Tottenham fans are aware of the racist use of the Y-word. We share the club’s feeling of discomfort about its use by Spurs supporters, regardless of their motivation. We hope that their WhY Word hub will encourage fans to learn more about how it can cause offence so that in future the term will be consigned to the history books.”
