Vic­tory fan in abuse claim

Geelong Advertiser - - SPORT -

A-LEAGUE pow­er­house Mel­bourne Vic­tory faces ques­tions over fan cul­ture after a sec­ond abu­sive in­ci­dent in as many weeks.

A man was stripped of his club mem­ber­ship after mak­ing a racist at­tack on so­cial me­dia to­wards Western Syd­ney player Tarek El­rich last week.

On Sat­ur­day, when Vic­tory hosted New­cas­tle Jets at AAMI Park, a free­lance pho­tog­ra­pher was al­legedly sub­jected to ho­mo­pho­bic slurs from the crowd. A spokesman said Vic­tory “would re­quire more in­for­ma­tion be­fore we make com­ment”.
