The Football Association (FA) has announced that Wolverhampton Wanderers have been fined £100,000 for homophobic chanting by some of their fans during a Premier League match against Chelsea in April. 

The FA has also implemented a plan of action to address this issue, which includes raising awareness about unacceptable behavior and will be in effect for the upcoming season.

“The punishment relates to the ‘Chelsea rent boy’ chant, which is defined as a homophobic slur and was made a prosecutable offence for anyone found to sing or use the words by the Crown Prosecution Service in January 2022…,” the FA said in a statement.

“The Football Association now considers this specific chant to amount to a breach of FA Rules and reserve the right to pursue formal disciplinary action against any club whose supporters engage in such behaviour going forward.”
