VIDEO PROMOTING PREMIER LEAGUE'S NO ROOM FOR RACISM CAMPAIGN STORY: The Premier League has relaunched its 'No Room for Racism' campaign with a video featuring the likes of Tammy Abraham and Raheem Sterling.
Racism in soccer has been in the spotlight again this week after England players were abused in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia during a European Championship qualifier.
There have also been a number of incidents involving Premier League players - especially on social media - this season and last.
The Premier League says this phase of the 'No Room For Racism' campaign will be visible at all Premier League matches from Saturday 19 to Sunday 27 October, emphasising that racist conduct is not tolerated and urging supporters to take action - 'If you see it, report it.'
Premier League Interim Chief Executive Richard Masters said: "Our fans share the belief that racism has no place in football or wider society, but discrimination still exists among a minority.
We will not tolerate racism in any form and urge anybody who witnesses racist behaviour to report it.
"Tackling discrimination is a priority and we carry out a wide range of work in this area throughout the year.
Education is crucial and our clubs run fantastic community programmes focused on informing thousands of children and young people about the importance of equality and inclusion.
Off the pitch, we continue to review and improve reporting and sanctioning processes for offenders.
And within the game we are committed to creating more pathways for black coaches.
"Premier League football brings together fans and players from all backgrounds for matches which are watched around the world.
We are open to everyone and welcome all the supporters who bring passion, emotion and rivalry to create a positive matchday atmosphere, but we want to make it clear - there is no room for racism." (Production: Iain Axon)
