#Enough is an anti-racism campaign set up by the Professional Footballers Association of England and Wales, borne out of frustration – articulated both directly to the PFA, but also publicly via the player’s channels – regarding the racist abuse they receive online. Those four ejections totaled 25 games worth of sit outs due to the extreme nature of the comments.

How Does This Impact NCYSA Out of the 99 ejections we’ve had this spring (down 50% from last year!), we had four (4) ejections for violation of the Discrimination Policy – racially abusive language. Those four ejections totaled 25 games worth of sit outs due to the extreme nature of the comments.We don’t believe anyone wants to see or approve of any discriminatory hate speech. We also don’t want to see our young players thinking it’s okay to grow up and become adults . . .who are then arrested for yelling at professional players. We all have a choice. #Enough.
