The Sheffield Vulcans is joining other sports bodies, clubs and companies in a social media boycott this weekend as part of a drive to tackle online hate.
The move, which is supported by our members and supporters as well as many other sports clubs up and down the country, will see our social media accounts fall silent from 3pm tomorrow (Friday 30 April) until just before midnight on Monday (3 May).
We also call on our fellow IGR clubs to consider following suit in showing support.
As an IGR team we pride ourselves on providing a warm and welcoming environment for anyone interested in playing Rugby Union. Our commitment to inclusion and diversity is of paramount importance and we firmly believe that all social media platforms should be safe and welcoming spaces for all.
