COVID 19 Updates FIFA Racism Study Names Rashford, Saka as Biggest Targets of Social Media Abuse

In Euro 2020, 76 percent of the abuse targeted black players over their skin colour, with Twitter containing more constant racism and Instagram featuring more event-driven incidents. Over 38 percent of the abuse over Euro 2020’s semifinals and final came from the United Kingdom, with Saka, Rashford and Sancho the main targets.

“Our duty is to protect football, and that starts with the players who bring so much joy and happiness to all of us by their exploits on the field of play,” said FIFA president Gianni Infantino.

“Unfortunately, there is a trend developing where a percentage of posts on social media channels directed towards players, coaches, match officials and the teams themselves is not acceptable, and this form of discrimination — like any form of discrimination — has no place in football,” he said.
