Around 50 fans of Widzew Łódź, a Polish association football team, demonstrated shocking antisemitism before a game on Friday.

The supporters had gathered at a train station prior to a clash with local rivals ŁKS Łódź, a team which is often derisively referred to as having large amounts of Jewish support by rival clubs, in a manner much similar to how Tottenham Hotspur are discussed in the British Premier League.

The Widzew fans burned effigies which appeared to depict caricatures of Orthodox Jews, as well as revealing a banner with the text “1908, today the Jews were named. Let them burn, motherfuckers”, referring to the founding date of the rival club.

Some of the fans also appear to be performing Nazi salutes.
