Chelsea set to send anti-Semitic fans on educational courses

Chelsea will consider taking racist fans to Auschwitz to re-educate them.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, who is Jewish, is the driving force behind the club's zero tolerance policy on racism and he is committed to tackling the rise of anti-semitism in society.
Chelsea have already organised and paid for two trips to Auschwitz this year for club executives, staff and supporters.
In April, chairman Bruce Buck and director Euegene Tenenbaum were part of a club delegation at the March of the Living at Auschwitz.
Two months later, 150 club staff and supporters visited the concentration camp where more than a million men, women and children lost their lives.
Chelsea are not planning any more trips for the time being, but they would be willing to include fans who have convictions for racist offences on any future visits.
The club believe education is an important part of the fight against racism in football and society.
