The Gold Coast SUNS wholeheartedly condemn racist comments made towards one of its players via social media last night.

It’s simply not good enough, there is no place for racism in sport or society, it has to stop.

As a club and community, we must live up to our mantra of Challenge Accepted and call out racist behaviour, when we witness it.

We encourage people to better educate themselves and those around them, on the impact racist behaviour has on the victims and their family.

We need everyone to accept the challenge and stamp out racism.

Racism. It Stops With Me. #challengeaccepted

The Club will now work with the AFL to try and identify if the comments were made by an AFL member or member of an AFL club.
