La Liga Side Elche's Fan Group Takes Responsibility For Racist Chants
Published October 31, 2013
CLUB EXCUSED: The EFE reported the Spanish Football Federation's (RFEF) Competition Committee said in a statement that it has "exceptionally exempted Elche from any responsibility for what happened during the game." The Competition Committee "did, however, warn Elche that it should adopt preventive measures to keep similar incidents from being repeated." The committee "highlighted the collaboration between the club and the referee and the diligence in identifying the authors of the reprehensible conduct" (EFE, 10/30).
