Social Media Boycott

Woking Football Club will be joining other clubs in the Vanarama National League, and clubs in the Premier League, EFL and the women's football pyramid, in a collective social media switch off over the weekend of 30th April - 3rd May 2021. This social media boycott aims to raise awareness of the issues surrounding online abuse and highlight the greater preventative measures required by social media platforms to stop online abuse occurring.

Tackling online discriminatory abuse is a priority for us all. Whilst we are taking action by asking social media companies to do more, we recognise that players across the game and many others connected to it from all backgrounds continue to receive sexist, racist, and other forms of discriminatory abuse. We believe that football needs to unite to highlight the need for social media platforms to do more.

We stand together with clubs and leagues in English football, in the hope that we can encourage the social media platforms to go further to stop the abuse that happens on the sites which they are ultimately responsible for. From 3pm on Friday 30th April until 11.59pm on Monday 3rd May the @wokingfc Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts will be out of action.
