In what has been described as a “gruesome first” for sub-Saharan Africa, football fans have engaged in a public display of blatant antisemitism.

Sudan’s Al-Hilal Omdurman, a Khartoum-based club, appear to have displayed a huge image of Hitler, as well as the word “Holocaust” at a match. Al-Hilal Omdurman are one of the country’s largest clubs.

Police reportedly secured the block of seating where the incident occurred, but failed to make any arrests.

Fare, an organisation that tackles discrimination in football, is investigating.

Recently we produced a substantial amount of commentary of antisemitism and far-right extremism in European football.
