Kicking racism out of football

The government is bringing forward legislation to ban racist trolls from football stadiums.

  • Racism is unacceptable and for too long football has been marred by this shameful prejudice, with online trolls abusing our footballers from behind their keyboards.
  • So the Conservative government is bringing forward changes to the law to ban those convicted of racist online abuse from attending football games for up to 10 years – extending rules that already apply to those convicted of violence, disorder or racist chanting at matches.
  • Alongside efforts to stop online racism through the Online Safety Bill, this will help to protect victims of racism and make sure those committing this crime face the appropriate punishment.
