Antisemitic chants could close parts of Stamford Bridge

CHELSEA may see part of their Stamford Bridge ground closed for future European games after UEFA said it will open disciplinary proceedings over alleged antisemitism.

Supporters have been accused of antisemitic chants during a UEFA Europa League game against Vidi, in Budapest, last month.

The songs were believed to be aimed at fans of rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

There have also been allegations of anti-Jewish chanting at domestic fixtures.

Chelsea launched a campaign last year to educate about antisemitism in football.

A hearing will take place on February 28.
