Will online abuse increase after English women’s football’s record deal? – BBC News

Published

on



The Women’s Super League has signed a broadcast deal with the BBC and Sky earlier this year – the largest agreement in women’s football to date.

Anita Asante, who plays for Aston Villa, says the deal is a ‘huge opportunity to grow the sport’.

But she fears the increased exposure and boost to the profile of players may result in more online abuse, particularly towards non-white players.

Asante, who has experienced racist abuse from hostile crowds and on social media, says she worries whether players who haven’t been exposed to it before can ‘manage’ the potential abuse.

A report by the Professional Footballers Association has found that there has been a 48% increase in un-moderated racist online abuse in the second half of the 2020/21 football season.

    the black population of the UK is around 3.5% – yet every night on BBC news just about every face I see is black – reporters, newsreaders – in schools, police, on the street, on the tube – there's barely a white face anywhere – dont believe me ? well just watch with an open mind. Am I racist? I am married to a coloured girl for more than 20 yrs now. Its the BBC that is racist.

    what is the point of women's football? men are not interested – women are not interested – yet we have no choice but to contribute via the BBC licence fee for the ultra-WOKE PC BBC coverage of a sport that almost nobody watches – more people watch curling. The BBC is the vanguard of an illiberal woke hard left agenda – everyone else can see it so why does the BBC still maintain that its impartial ? =- Silly me ! The licence fee of course. Duh !

    Played for 20 years in Ice Hockey premierships. Back in the day when it was not so welcomed. We had constant abuse from male counterparts as well as assumptions we were all gay ( many of us were not, but even if that was the case…??!!!) so, this is nothing new. We never got « training » about prejudice or teams of people protecting us from it. We got beaten up outside the rink, our stuff got stolen from the lockeroom, and our ice time shorten by the never leaving male teams using it before us….It carried on for years….But we raised above it. We carried on with our heads high. It eventually stopped bit by bit. The more you talk about it, the more you are going to provoke people. Just decide what you want to do with your life and do not let haters control your choice. Move on!!!!!

    Women's football is a handicapped sport. The handicap is "having a female physique". If there is any abuse to be expected, it will rather be in that department. People don't like cheaters.
