English football has confirmed a complete social media blackout to take place over the May bank holiday weekend.

In a press release the Premier League, English Football League, the FA and Women’s Super League have revealed they will boycott all social media platforms from Friday, April 30 to Monday, May 3.

The boycott is in protest of the continued abuse players have been receiving over recent months and years and is aimed at forcing Facebook, Twitter and Instagram into action.
