Yeovil Town hits back at use of its logo on xenophobic sticker at Euro 2024

YEOVIL Town FC has condemned a xenophobic message spotted in Germany at Euro 2024 which used the club’s old logo with the slogan “stop the boats”.

The photo of the sticker, which was circulated on social media, also said “foreigners out” in German under the Yeovil Town logo and was posted on X last Sunday, June 23, which prompted the club to put out a statement condemning the message.

The club said it “stands firmly against any form of discrimination, xenophobia, or divisive rhetoric.”

The statement reads: “Yeovil Town Football Club is aware of a sticker featuring our former logo with the slogan ‘stop the boats’, which has been spotted in Germany and circulating social media.

“We want to make it unequivocally clear that Yeovil Town Football Club does not condone or support this message in any form.
“We pride ourselves on being an inclusive and welcoming community that respects all individuals, regardless of their background or nationality.
“The use of our former logo in this manner is unauthorised, and we are taking steps to address this misuse.
“We appreciate the continued support of our fans and community as we work to uphold the values of respect, unity, and diversity.”
