Tranmere Rovers Football Club will be participating in a nationwide football social media boycott alongside all clubs in both the EFL and the Premier League.
The FA, FA Women’s Super League, FA Women’s Championship, PFA, LMA, PGMOL, Kick it Out and FSA will also be taking part to unite for a social media boycott from 3pm on Friday 30th April to 23.59 on Monday 3rd May.
The boycott is in response to the ongoing and sustained discriminatory abuse received online by players and many others connected in football.
All associated Tranmere Rovers Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts will be participating in the boycott (This includes TRFC Radio and Supporter Liaison).
Tranmere Rovers Trust, TROSC and Rover & Out have all kindly agreed to participate in the boycott too.
