Sudanese Soccer Fans Appear To Celebrate Holocaust With Massive Hitler Banner

An anti-discrimination soccer network is investigating a Sudanese club after its supporters were seen holding a massive banner of Adolf Hitler and appearing to celebrate the Holocaust, the Mirror reported.

FARE, an international network backed by major soccer institutions like FIFA, tweeted early Monday about the supporters of Al Hilal Omdurman, a major Sudanese team.

In pictures from a recent game, fans could be seen holding signs that read “HOLOCAUST” next two a massive banner of Hitler’s face.


The Mirror reported that the club’s “ultras,” its highly organized, fanatical supporters, were allegedly behind the display.

Al Hilal Omdurman is based in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan.
