Australia to impose lifetime bans for racism

  (173 views)

Fans at Australia’s first Test against India could be banned from the Melbourne Cricket Ground for life if they are found to be involved in racial taunting of players and other fans, Cricket Australia (CA) said on Sunday.

Anyone caught doing so by undercover surveillance officers would be ejected from the ground and face further action, a CA spokesman told Melbourne’s Herald Sun newspaper.“Our message to any mindless people who are thinking of going down that path is we won’t tolerate that sort of thing,” CA spokesman Peter Young told the newspaper.

“We will find anyone who does it, they will be ejected from the ground and they face life bans from ever re-entering the ground.”Police will also be checking for any offensive or racist slogans on banners while patrons will be encouraged to report any behaviour to groundstaff or the police. The players’ behaviour will also be monitored.
