Manchester United fans top list of arrests involving racism as a factor

Manchester United supporters have been involved in more football-related arrests where racism was an aggravating factor or feature than any other club in England in the four seasons to 2017-18, data from the Home Office shows.

Data released under a Freedom of Information request by the Press Association shows that 27 individuals recorded as United fans by police were arrested during the seasons 2014-15 to 2017-18.

Championship clubs Leeds and Millwall each had 15 supporters arrested, while Leicester had 14 and Chelsea 13.

The 2018-19 season in England featured a couple of high-profile incidents and arrests related to allegations of racism. Data for the season just ended is set to be released later this summer.
