A Chelsea supporter has been banned from attending football matches for three years due to homophobic chanting at Brighton.
20-year-old George Bradley pleaded guilty to ‘using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour to cause harassment, alarm or distress’.
He was also fined £965 for the incident, which occurred during the Blues’ 2-1 win at the Amex in December.
Bradley now cannot attend football matches until 2022, as a result.
Sections of the Chelsea faithful have come in for scrutiny in recent months after the club suspended four while an investigation into alleged racial abuse of Raheem Sterling at Stamford Bridge proceeds.
They also issued a strong statement to condemn a minority chanting anti-Semitic messages during a Europa League fixture against MOL Vidi.
