The Premier League has announced plans to provide education resources to schools in an effort to combat offensive chants related to tragedies during matches. This comes in response to recent incidents, including fans making inappropriate references to the Hillsborough disaster during a match involving Luton Town and Liverpool. The Premier League, along with clubs, the Football Association, and the Football League, strongly condemns such behavior and is determined to address it as a priority. The resources, including a video message from a Hillsborough victim’s relative, will be distributed to thousands of schools and teachers in England and Wales. The aim is to help children understand the impact of negative behavior and promote a more respectful atmosphere in football. Additionally, new measures have been introduced this season to potentially penalize those engaging in offensive chants.
