How the Premier League continues to fight racism

The Premier League is working harder than ever to fight racism and the racial abuse that our players receive online through its flagship No Room For Racism campaign.

Since 2020, more than 2,500 incidents of online abuse against Premier League players, their families or staff have been investigated by the Premier League’s dedicated team.

See something? Say something

Did you know that fans can now also report such incidents of abuse that they see directly to the Premier League?

The Premier League investigates cases of abuse all over the world. While, sadly, the problem persists, so do our efforts to stop it.  

And for those who think it is acceptable to abuse footballers online, there are serious consequences: these include a criminal sentence; bans from clubs; or losing your job. 

We have also produced simple guides to fans to report any racial abuse directly on the social media platforms where they are encountered.

Education from an early age

As well as fighting racial abuse where it exists, the Premier League is looking to tackle this issue at source and educate young people about what racism is and its impact on people.

Through the Premier League Primary Stars programme, almost 11,000 teachers have delivered the programme's  No Room For Racism resources, which focus on allyship, racial stereotyping, online abuse and inclusion, to over 328,000 pupils since the programme's launch in 2017.  

In a recent evaluation conducted by EVERFI, 88 per cent of teachers surveyed said that Premier League Primary Stars helped their students understand more about challenging prejudice and discrimination, and 95 per cent reported that the programme had positively impacted their school community. 

The impact of the Primary Stars resources was acknowledged at the ISC International Sports Awards 2023 where PL Primary Stars was the winner of the education award, which included recognition for its diversity and inclusion work.
