English football will boycott social media next weekend in response to the discrimination and abuse aimed at players, pundits and other members of the footballing community.
Authorities including the Football Association, Premier League, English Football League, FA Women's Super League, FA Women's Championship, PFA (Professional Footballers' Association), and Kick It Out announced the move in a joint statement.
They say it shows "English football coming together to emphasise that social media companies must do more to eradicate online hate, while highlighting the importance of educating people in the ongoing fight against discrimination".
