LAFC President and Owner Tom Penn and Josef Zacher, President of the 3252 released the following joint statement:
The Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) and The 3252 Independent Supporters Union will not tolerate the offensive goal kick chant at Banc of California Stadium. We are disappointed and upset that it resurfaced last night at our match and understand we have work to do.
The chant has no place in our City or Stadium and does not represent who we are as a Club. It is our priority to work together to develop new processes and procedures to eliminate this chant from our Stadium in 2019.
LAFC and The 3252 are committed to creating an inclusive, welcoming and safe experience at Banc of California Stadium for all fans. Any fans identified as participating in this offensive chanting or other prohibited acts, will be removed from the stadium and permanently banned.
We are proud of the passionate community we have built in Los Angeles, and together we will win in the stands.
