No room for racism anywhere in premier leagueOctober 16, 2021
Players reinforce anti-discrimination message, no room for racism.
This weekend, all Premier League matches will be dedicated to No Room For Racism. As we remind fans of the importance that everybody challenges and reports discriminatory behaviour, wherever they see it.
A new video featuring players from all 20 clubs explains how anybody found guilty of racist abuse, whether it occurs within stadiums or online, will be permanently banned from all Premier League grounds. So, all fans should conduct their self in good way to respect each other.
We have a long-term commitment to address racism in football and wider society. To our society better for all.
Here are some of the ways we are looking to do so:
- At grounds, stewards are being trained to ensure they can respond to discriminatory abuse. They will help in gathering evidence to ban perpetrators.
- Through our online reporting system, we are supporting people in football who receive discriminatory abuse. Also,we are identifying perpetrators, with legal action taken where required. While reporting thousands of items of abusive content to social media companies for removal.
- We are also lobbying Government and challenging social media companies to eliminate abuse on their platforms.
- We are also adding to our library of No Room For Racism teaching materials that are free to more than 18,000 primary schools across England and Wales through Premier League Primary Stars.
The resources are available for use at home and explore heritage, discrimination and allyship . And will feature a number of first-team stars sharing their experiences and discussing online abuse. Allyship and taking the knee with youngsters will also follow.
