A video, showing dozens of people celebrating the victory of Bruges’s team with anti-Semitic chants, emerged this week in the Belgian media. The clip has prompted outrage, as the European Jewish Congress called on international sports organizations to use “harsher punishments”.
The clip, published by the local newspaper La Derniere Heure, has put Brugge FC under fire as dozens of their fans were caught singing in Flemish: “My father was in the commandos, my mother was in the SS, together they burned Jews cause Jews burn the best”. The video was filmed on 26 August in the popular tourist city when they celebrated after their club beat the Belgian capital’s Anderlecht.
After the video was published, the club “strongly condemned this behaviour”, as the official statement, cited by the HLN news website, says. According to the team, several fans, featured in the video had been identified and banned from the club’s Jan Breydel Stadium.
