Breaking: Ulster Ban Spectator For Life For Simon Zebo Abuse

Simon Zebo Ulster

Ulster Rugby have banned a spectator for life from the Kingspan Stadium due to verbal abuse aimed at Simon Zebo. 

Zebo was on the receiving end of verbal abuse when he played at the Kingspan Stadium in Belfast for his club Racing 92 in their recent encounter with Ulster in the Heineken Champions Cup.

The former Ireland winger suggested that he was verbally abused in a social media post and this was since confirmed by his club afterwards who also stated that it was racial in nature.

Ulster have issued an apology to Zebo and Racing 92 for the incident.

An Ulster statement reads:

“Following a robust investigation into allegations of abuse directed at Simon Zebo during the fixture versus Racing 92 on Saturday 12th January, Ulster Rugby has sanctioned a life-time ban on a spectator, for breaching our stadium regulations.

“We would like to thank the many supporters who provided information to assist our investigation.

“We are all very proud of our reputation as an inclusive club and the unacceptable behaviour of this one individual is not reflective of our supporters, or the values of our club.

“We have issued a written apology to Simon Zebo and Racing 92.”
