In protest against racist comments on the Internet, top clubs in English football have announced a three-day boycott of online networks such as Twitter. The boycott starts at 4pm next Friday and runs until 12:59 pm on Tuesday, with the English Football Association announcing Saturday as well as the men’s first and second division and the women’s top division. Football managers and referees also participate in the protests.

Participants said that players and others are being racially insulted on the online network Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Internet platforms must “do more” to fight against messages of hate on the Internet and against discrimination. The list of racially abusive players in England is long.

The English Football League and Club recognize the “significant reach and value of social media for our sport” in announcing their boycott. The fact that clubs can contact their fans about this is still “important”. More days of moderation from social media should show the need for action to combat racism.
