DAZN joins English football social media boycott

We stand in solidarity with English football's protest against racism on social media.

At DAZN, we stand alongside The FA, EPL and EFL in tackling racial hatred and discrimination on social media platforms.

Many players and others connected to football have received ongoing and sustained discriminatory abuse online, through social media and otherwise.

The collective efforts of the sports community – which includes broadcasters, leagues, teams, players, officials and charities - call for significant improvements in policy and procedures regarding online discrimination on social media platforms. 

To show our solidarity, we are participating in the social media blackout of English football content on DAZN social channels this weekend. DAZN joins various teams and athletes in this boycott. 

The blackout period is from Friday 30th April, 3pm GMT, to midnight on Monday 3rd May.
