Mansfield Town Football Club has today issued a lifetime ban from One Call Stadium to a spectator found guilty of racist abuse during the club’s mid-week match at home to Carlisle United.
A 31-year-old male was sentenced to a total of six months and two weeks in prison when he appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 09 December 2021.
He was also ordered to pay £100 in compensation and handed an eight-year football banning order after pleading guilty to assault and racially aggravated public order offences.
Mansfield Town completely condemns the use of racist language and instances of discriminatory or prejudiced behaviour will not be tolerated at any game at One Call Stadium.
Anyone who is found guilty of such an offence will be banned from the club for life.
Any such behaviour has no place within our stadium, our Club, our community or our game.
Supporters who hear or witness anything deemed inappropriate in this regard are encouraged to report it to a steward or via the Kick it Out App.
