Club Statement: FA Charge

Love Pools, Hate Racism, Hartlepool United

Hartlepool United can confirm that we are in receipt of the FA Charge under Rule E20 and will respond accordingly by Tuesday 5th November.

In previous statements we have made clear our condemnation of individuals’ behaviour during the fixture against Dover Athletic, and have continued to underline our position on discrimination or abuse of any kind through our actions rather than words.

Our aim has been to set the example on how to respond to matters such as this and we will continue to explore all avenues of education and improvement in that regard.

We look forward to a fair hearing with The FA.
