Earlier this week, Brentford FC Chief Executive Jon Varney spoke to Sky Sports about the ongoing social media boycott. Brentford FC are joining in a football-wide social media boycott that started at 3pm yesterday, Friday 30 April, and run until the end of Monday 3 May. The boycott was announced by the football authorities last week and we confirmed that we will switch off all social media channels in line with others across the game.

Before The Bees faced Rotherham United, Jon spoke about the boycott. He discussed what had prompted Brentford to push for it and what it was hoped would be achieved. He also called for social media companies to do more to protect users.
