West Ham United statement

The Football Association has concluded its investigation into events surrounding West Ham United's game at Tottenham Hotspur on 25 November 2012 and has confirmed that no further action will be taken against West Ham United.

In a written response to West Ham United, The FA praised the Club's reaction to the reported incidents of inappropriate behaviour, which included issuing immediate life bans to any supporter found to have acted in an unacceptable way.

The governing body also applauded West Ham United's planning and co-operation with the authorities and Tottenham Hotspur regarding the return match at the Boleyn Ground on Monday 25 February 2013, which passed off without major incident.

The Club works extremely hard to address all forms of discriminatory behaviour, wherever they occur, and operates a strict zero tolerance policy towards anyone who behaves inappropriately when following the team.

West Ham United actively promotes events and campaigns that highlight and combat prejudice towards individuals and groups because of disability, race, sex, sexual orientation and religion.

The Club actively supports campaigns promoting inclusion and tolerance, including Kick It Out, Show Racism the Red Card, Football v Homophobia and Holocaust Memorial Day, while the West Ham United Community Sports Trust works positively with people of all ages and backgrounds.

More information on the Club's award-winning work in the community can be found here.
