Racist Banners During Poland – Latvia Game13 October 2002

Sunday 13th October, during the Poland – Latvia game at the stadium of Legia Warszawa two big Nazi banners were displayed in the Polish sector. Both were Celtic crosses, with one having “Skinheads” written in gothic writing. There was no reaction from the authorities and the banners were visible on TV.

Ironically, this comes after the Polish FA strongly criticised UEFA for failing to react against a provocative anti-Polish banner during the Utrecht-Legia game in Holland earlier in October.
