On behalf of the sport in the UK, Ice Hockey UK and Great Britain ice hockey will stand with other sporting bodies and clubs this Bank Holiday weekend by supporting the boycott of social media.

There will be no activity on the Ice Hockey UK and all Great Britain ice hockey social media platforms from 3pm this afternoon until 11:59pm on Monday to show that nobody should suffer racism, harassment or any form of abuse on social media.

We stand in solidarity with the sporting community and call for an end of online hate and discrimination. We believe social media companies need to do more to put an end to online hate in whatever form.
