AFCB Vital will be joining the social media boycott this weekend.

Initiated by England’s footballing governing bodies, the boycott has now spread across numerous sports including Cricket and Rugby, whilst Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton will also be taking part.

The idea behind it is down to the perceived lack of action from social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook in regards to all kinds of discriminatory abuse online.

The boycott begins at 3pm today (30th April 2021) and runs across the entire Bank Holiday weekend.

Whilst AFCB Vital only actively use Twitter, football clubs and players widely use various platforms including Facebook-owned Instagram, YouTube and TikTok.

So this weekend our regular “Highlights & Reaction” article will not be online over the weekend, but our news pages and forum will remain active.
