Leeds Football Club Launches Anti-Racism Campaign

A campaign against racist football fans was launched by Leeds United in March 1987. The club said that it would be handing out 40,000 leaflets to fans warning them of the consequences of racist chanting and abusive behaviour. The campaign was launched to tie in with the new Public Order Act; the provision on incitement to racial hatred had come into effect in April 1987.
