Following some recent isolated racial and homophobic incidents at fellow professional football clubs recently, the Club would like to issue the following statement:

Aldershot Town Football Club has always and will always be a family-orientated club, providing an entertaining match-day experience for all.

However, it seems appropriate to remind all supporters that abuse has no place at our home. As a result of this, those who are found guilty of any kind of racial or homophobic abuse directed at anyone at the EBB Stadium, will be given an immediate life-time ban.

We want the EBB Stadium to continue to be the best, safest and most comfortable place to watch football for all Aldershot Town Football Club fans and so, we have a zero-tolerance stance towards those who wish to abuse staff or disrupt the enjoyment and experience of others.

We’d like to thank our supporters for all of their continued support at both home and away matches so far this season.
