While the vast majority of football supporters saw a talented young team fight its way to the Euro 2020 final, some pathetic individuals saw an opportunity to throw online racist abuse at those very same players. The Football Supporters Association has produced some simple guidance about how you can report racist abuse.
Many words will be spent condemning the illegal abuse hurled at England’s players – and the FSA joins those voices in calling for social media companies to do more. Racism has no place in football or society.
But words alone will not convince racist trolls and the FSA believes all fans should act when they hear or see such abuse. Whether it’s online or at the match there are many ways for football supporters to report individuals and social media accounts. Do it.
