Explained: Why FA fined Millwall less for racism than Huddersfield for kit

The FA has been accused of not taking racism seriously enough after fining Huddersfield compared to Millwall because of their lovers’ racist chanting.
Even though there’s a disparity between the #50,000 handed into the Terriers and the #10,000 to the Lions – that was emphasized by betting company Paddy Power and others – that doesn’t paint the full image of Millwall’s punishment and just how much they must pay.
As well as the nice, attempt to solve their racism difficulties and the FA devised an action plan with Millwall to address, which included measures like CCTV and stewarding.

The strategy – which was initially to fight current issues and secondly to educate fans – will cost a considerable quantity of money take their own charge even or much nearer more than that of Huddersfield, and to implement.
The FA is understood to believe this progressive way to be a way of helping end racism issues as opposed to simply handing them a fine.
The governing body believes that it highlights how seriously they take the racism problem, rather than how lightly.
The magnitude of the fine of Huddersfield was in part because they were warned by the FA they would be prior to taking to the area.
The Yorkshire club have accepted and apologised to the FA, issuing a statement that read:”Huddersfield Town accepts the findings of this FA inside this investigation, and chose not to appeal the sanction.
“We accept that our actions have been in breach of regulations and we apologised for this mistake. We won’t comment on this matter.
“We would worry that any comments on this sanction created by third parties don’t represent the perspectives of Huddersfield Town.”
