Wolves adopt working definition of antisemitism

Wolves has adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) working definition of antisemitism.

The adoption of the definition is part of the Wolves’ One Pack commitment, which prioritises equality, diversity and inclusion throughout supporters, staff and club. 

The Premier League, and the majority of its member clubs, have also today adopted the definition, which has is being used by the governments of the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Hungary, the United States, the European Parliament and many more.

The IHRA’s definition of antisemitism states: “Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed towards Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religions facilities.”

Wolves supporter liaison officer and equality working group member Dave Wood, said: “At Wolves we are committed to tackling discrimination, and our adoption of the IHRA's working definition, with the many other organisations that have also adopted it in over 30 countries around the world, will enable us to be more effective in dealing with antisemitism in all forms.

"The adoption of the IHRA’s working definition is the latest step in our continued One Pack work to ensure that Molineux is a welcoming environment for all, and reinforces the message that we do not accept discrimination of any kind.”
