In precedent, Israeli soccer club faces disciplinary action over anti-gay chants by fans

In a precedent in Israel, a soccer club will face a disciplinary hearing over homophobic chants by its fans during a match, according to the Kan public broadcaster.

In yesterday’s Israel Premier League bout, fans of Maccabi Tel Aviv repeatedly shouted “Danny Amos is gay” at the goalkeeper of the rival Maccabi Netanya.

While he is not a member of the LGBTQ community, Amos has a gay brother and is a vocal supporter of LGBTQ rights.

At one point, he complained about the chants to the referee.
