The PL is one of the most-watched and talked about footballing leagues in the whole world. It has a viewership that spans across the globe and it has a great effect on fans and supporters. The players have been going through some tough times with the most prominent example being that of Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford, and Jadon Sancho who had to undergo racist abuse in the aftermath of England’s Euro 2020 final defeat.

Spurs have themselves been a target of such foul acts when Son Heung-min was racially abused on social media after the Lilywhites played Manchester United in a PL fixture on 11th April 2021.

Son Heung min of Tottenham Hotspur has been a victim of racism in the past

Racism has been a stinging problem and has tarnished the reputation of the beautiful game to a great extent. Many foreign and national players have been the subject of racism in the past and the Premier League has taken a firm stance against such inhumane behaviour.

There will be a list of measures undertaken under this campaign that will enhance steward training, launch new educational resources along with the league joining hands with the UK government to challenge social media companies to help prevent racism online.

Spurs’ next two fixtures between 16th and 24th October will be a part of the ‘No Room for Racism’ campaign. The Cheif Executive of Premier League, Richard Masters has made his thoughts known on the fight against racism:

“The Premier League and our clubs are fully committed to fighting racism. Unfortunately, we are reminded far too frequently that there is more to be done.”

Along with these measures, a video is also set to be released that will showcase the consequences for whoever takes part in racism and discrimination.

Such an initiative can help the League to educate fans across the world to stop and prevent racism in its tracks. The beautiful game has always united people irrespective of their race, gender, or religion and such an initiative is a step in the right direction to eliminate these unwanted elements from football.
