EPL players to boycott social media for 1 day due to racism

Premier League stars have been encouraged to boycott social media for 24 hours as a reaction to the increased level of racial abuse that has plagued the football games in recent days.

As you may know, many players have been racially abused in recent days and nothing seems to be done.

This has persuaded Sky Sports to back the PFA’s anti-racism campaign #Enough by embarking on 24 hours of silence on social media.

Sky Sports launched the anti-racism campaign to increase the pressure on social media companies and football authorities to take a stronger stand and action against racism.

Players plying their trade in England have now been asked to shun all forms of social media between 9am on Friday, April 19, to 9am on Saturday, April 20, in response to ever growing issue of football racism.

Only recenly, Manchester United duo of Ashley Young and Chris Smalling were racially abused after the Red Devils exit from the Champions League after a match with Barca.
