The Premier League returns after the international break and is urging fans to challenge and report racism in football and wider society.

All Premier League matches taking place over the next two weekends will be dedicated to No Room For Racism and the League has released a video to reinforce the message that there is no place for racist abuse.

The video reminds supporters that the introduction of League-wide sanctions at the start of the season means that anybody found guilty of racist abuse, whether it occurs within stadiums or online, will be permanently banned from all Premier League grounds.

Tyrone Mings, Michail Antonio, Cesar Azpilicueta, Conor Coady, Ben Mee and Kalvin Phillips feature in a video calling on supporters to 'Challenge it, report it, change it.'

Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said: "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.

"We will do all we can to ensure action is taken, making it clear there is no place for racial prejudice in football and wider society.

"We will not stand for it in our grounds and we will continue to work with our clubs and the authorities to make sure players, managers, their families and others do not have to experience online hate.

"We urge fans to join us and show their support by challenging and reporting any form of racist behaviour, wherever and whenever they see it."

Since 2019, the Premier League has been proactively monitoring social media platforms and has reported thousands of items of abusive content to social media companies for removal.

Earlier this year, the Premier League launched its No Room For Racism Action Plan, outlining a series of commitments to promote equality, diversity and inclusion and provide positive coaching, executive and player pathways for people from black and mixed heritage backgrounds.
