Tottenham first to act against homophobic chants

LONDON, Feb 20 (Reuters) - Tottenham Hotspur have become the first club in England to launch a campaign to stamp out homophobic chanting at their home matches.

The move comes two weeks after Spurs fans sang an offensive song about their former captain Sol Campbell who made headlines by disappearing for four days after a poor performance for Arsenal against West Ham.

'We are fully aware of the spate of homophobic songs and chants that have been creeping into the game,' Peter Secchi, a Tottenham club spokesman, said.

'We have printed a warning in our match programme to remind fans that that kind of abuse will not be tolerated.

'We have spoken to the Premier League about this and we hope other clubs follow this lead.'

Sports Minister Richard Caborn praised Spurs' initiative.

'I compliment Spurs on taking such a positive step. It sends a significant message to fans that abusive chants on race, colour, creed or sexuality will not be tolerated,' Caborn said in a statement.
