Over A Million People Sign Petition To Ban Racists From Football Matches For Life
Over a million people have signed a petition to ban racists from football matches in England for life.
The petition, which was started by three fans, calls on the umbrella group the Football Association, as well as prime minister Boris Johnson and culture secretary Oliver Dowden, to ban people who have expressed racism online and offline from attending matches.
It has racked up huge support in just 24 hours.
It reads: “After last night’s match, vile racist abuse was directed at our heroic players Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka and Jadon Sancho.
“As multi-racial football fans, we finally feel represented by this anti-racist and inclusive England team. We could not be more proud or inspired by our magnificent team and by their talent, bravery, leadership and love for all.
“There should be no room for racists and bigotry in football or society.
“We are calling for the Football Association and the government to work together now to ban all those who have carried out racist abuse, online or offline, from all football matches in England for life.”
