A-League fan banned after racist abuse
Football Federation Australia (FFA) has acted on the Paul Ifill racial abuse incident, announcing an Adelaide man had been banned from attending any A-League match for two years.
The man was found to have breached the FFA Spectator Code of Behaviour during last Sunday's A-League match between Adelaide United and Wellington Phoenix at Hindmarsh Stadium.
Adelaide United Football Club also cancelled membership held by the man.
Wellington Phoenix star Ifill said on Twitter at the time, a line had been crossed when he was racially abused. He tweeted "racist abuse from a very small minority of fans" adding "a line was crossed today."
South Australian Police and security staff at Hindmarsh Stadium were made aware of the racial abuse, which came as Ifill was substituted in the 61st minute.
The FFA's code of behaviour says spectators must respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability, race, colour, religion, language, politics, national or ethnic origin.
The FFA said compliance with the code is a condition of entry to all matches under its jurisdiction.
