A recent documentary by David and Ivor Baddiel looks at antisemitism in the Beautiful Game. It is entitled "The Y Word" and focuses on Tottenham Hotspur, a successful North London football club whose supporters label themselves and regularly chant “Yiddos” – although only some 5% of their following are of Jewish extraction.
The film-makers condemn this for it often leads to a negative response from Spurs’ rivals, most notably Chelsea, West Ham and Arsenal.
The problem is not limited to London however – it is very much an international problem - most notably in Poland and Ukraine. It was recently highlighted in the BBC’s World Football programme. You can check it out the podcast yourself by clicking here.
