Is Racism In Sport Here to Stay?

Our CEO, Tom Thirlwall, joined Trevor Philips, Azeem Rafiq, Dr Martha Newson, Leanne Sanderson and a viewers panel on Sky News The Great Debate. Discussing racism in sport, the panel explored what sports fans can do to stand up to racism, the role of social media companies, making sport inclusive at all levels and whether racism is a reflection of society as a whole.

From abuse of the highest profile England football players, to discrimination at grassroots level, sports people across the country regularly endure abuse based on their skin colour or background.
