Premier League And All EPL Clubs Social Media Accounts Will Now Be Going Silent

24

Premier League social media accounts will now be going silent until Tuesday 4 May. Online abuse must stop. Social media platforms must do more. English football is taking a stand against online abuse and racism on social media by staging a boycott this weekend. English football will unite in social media silence this weekend as Premier League clubs join their counterparts in the FA, EFL and the Women's Super League in protest. A boycott of platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram has been planned across the game in England in order to highlight issues of discrimination and abuse endured by footballers online. That means games such as Manchester United versus Liverpool and Newcastle United versus Arsenal, which take place this weekend, will not be promoted on social media. # NoRoomForRacism | # StopOnlineAbuse
