There have been a number of high-profile sexism cases in British football (soccer) in recent years, according to the BBC.
The Football Association is calling on fans to report sexist abuse at games after being shown disturbing scenes of women officials and staff being subjected to obscene chants, according to BBC Sport.
Footage obtained by the BBC shows Chelsea’s female medic Dr Eva Carneiro and a female assistant referee Helen Byrne suffering taunts during recent matches.
FA board member Heather Rabbatts described the abuse as “horrible”. She said it should not be tolerated, adding: “We are absolutely encouraging people to report incidents like this.”
The footage was taken at Chelsea matches against Manchester City and Manchester United, as well as a game in the Football League.
Update: two videos of this incident have been removed from the internet.
