MUST Statement on Social Media Boycott and ProtestMUST has steadfastly called out racial abuse directed at our players on social media. We stand fully behind this weekend’s boycott of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. MUST accounts on these platforms will be stood down from 3pm Friday until midnight on Monday. We are aware of plans for fans to protest before Sunday’s match which naturally we'd normally have covered on social media. The owners should not be surprised by this action that they have themselves triggered. We fully support the right to protest in a way that is legal, peaceful, Covid safe and does not compromise the security of the team.While our social media channels will not report on events over the weekend, we will provide updates through our website and email channels.

There are a few other things you can do right now:
1. For UK members there is a petition on Parliament’s website to ask the Government to bring in a law requiring all football clubs to have at least 50% + 1 fan ownership, as there is in Germany. The link is here (https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/583310) and we’d urge all UK members to sign it and/or ask others based in the UK to do so too. If we can get the number of signatories to 100,000 then the subject will be considered for a debate in Parliament which adds to political momentum.
2.
