English Premier League adopts IHRA’s definition of anti-Semitism

The English Premier League adopts the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of anti-Semitism, which the soccer league’s No. 2 says will better equip it to address anti-Semitic behavior directed at teams or personnel.

“The adoption of the IHRA’s working definition of antisemitism is the latest step in the Premier League’s continued work to ensure that football is a welcoming environment for all,” Bill Bush says in a statement.

The move is hailed by Lord John Mann, the British government’s anti-Semitism advisor, and the head of the American Jewish Committee.

“Hundreds of millions of people around the world follow closely the Premier League’s teams and players. The impact of today’s decision and its implementation can be extraordinarily helpful in the battle against rising anti-Semitism,” the AJC’s David Harris says.
