Veloce joins sport-wide social media blackout

Veloce Esports and Veloce Racing joined together at the weekend to participate in the sport-wide social media blackout. Initiated by the Premier League, we followed as sporting bodies across the country made a stand against online discrimination. 

There is no place in sport, nor our society, for racism, homophobia, sexism or any form of discriminatory abuse. As a community, we must make social media a safer place for all, where discrimination and hate speech is not acceptable or where it goes unpunished.

What you can do:

You can block users and report incidents to any social media platform

We advise that if you (or someone you know) have received any discriminatory and/or hateful, abusive comments online that you report this to the relevant social media platform. Below are a list of links to get you to the right area:

Hate speech is an offence. We also advise that you directly report an incident to the police if you have been a victim of a crime, or you feel a crime has been committed through social media.
