Hamilton Academical Football Club supports social media boycott

Hamilton Academical Football Club will stop activity on all social media platforms from 15:00 on Friday 30 April to 23:59 on Monday 3 May.

Scottish football will unite to support a boycott of social media in response to racial and discriminatory abuse online aimed at professionals within the game.

We will join clubs across the United Kingdom as well as the Scottish FA, Scottish Professional Football League, Scottish Women’s Football and PFA Scotland in switching off all social media activity.

The club will be using our website on Saturday to provide supporters updates of our fixture against St Mirren.

Chairman, Allan Maitland said: “Hamilton Accies is a club for all and we fully support the upcoming social media boycott.”

There simply is no excuse for anyone to be subject to discriminatory abuse online with no real consequences for perpetrators.

“We expect social media companies to do more and take a much tougher stance on those doing so.”
