Matches dedicated to No Room For Racism by Premier League clubs are now taking place. It was announced yesterday that matches between 16 and 24 October will mark the anti-racism message, as the League and our clubs continue to urge fans to challenge and report discriminatory behaviour wherever they see it. No Room for Racism messaging was visible at our game against Chelsea yesterday.
The League released a video on Friday to reinforce the message that there is no place for racist abuse and that fans can play a key role in the fight against discrimination. The video reminds supporters that the introduction of League-wide sanctions at the start of the 2021/22 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.

As part of the campaign, the 20 Premier League clubs coordinated a message on Friday afternoon. Brentford were among the clubs to post on social media, reiterating the No Room for Racism message. See more below.
