Millwall charged after alleged racist chanting at FA cup Everton match

By Demi Williams

Millwall have been charged by the Football Association after fans were heard allegedly chanting racist language during the FA Cup match with Everton in January.

Fans were allegedly heard using offensive language to the Pakistani community during the game.

The chanting followed a brawl outside the football ground, where an Everton fan was slashed in the face by a rival supporter.

A statement from the Football Association read: “It is alleged the club (Millwall) failed to ensure its spectators conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and refrained from using abusive and/or insulting words, which included a reference to race and/or ethnic origin, during the Emirates FA Cup tie against Everton on 26 January 2019.”

The January match ended with a 3-2 win for Millwall.
