Racism towards England football players - a statement of solidarity

After recent reports of online racist abuse of football players Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka following the England vs Italy Euros 2020 final on Sunday, we stand in solidarity and support of the players and students who have been affected by this.

Sheffield Hallam Students’ Union does not tolerate any form of racist harassment or abuse, whether this is verbal, physical or online. It is simply not acceptable and any racial incidents that occur amongst our students will be thoroughly investigated and dealt with.

As a Students’ Union, we, along with the University, are doing everything we can to ensure that Sheffield Hallam continues to be a safe, tolerant and inclusive community. We want students to receive the best possible university experience and ensure that students feel valued, respected and safe.

Sheffield Hallam Students’ Union is a hate crime reporting centre. If you have experienced a racial hate incident or hate crime, you can report it either anonymously or with your personal details through the Hallam Report + Support service.

Students can also get free, confidential and independent support from our Student Advice Centre, where you can find a range of wellbeing resources.

You can also read more about what hate crime is and what to do if you think someone has experienced hate or you think you have witnessed a hate incident here.
