Is racism in sport here to stay?

What can sporting clubs do to stop fan and online abuse? What impact does it have and can tech companies help stamp it out? Is racism in sport a reflection of society as a whole?

Sky is looking for people to take part in a new series of weekly discussion programme, The Great Debate.

We will be joined by some of the biggest names to tackle the issues dominating the week's news agenda - and we want your questions and comments.

The Great Debate will feature topics that put viewers at the heart of the debate on issues they care about, whether that be the environment, the economy, immigration, or something else.

Every Monday evening, Sky presenter Trevor Phillips will address a different single topic with a panel of news-makers, opinion-formers and experts to get a deeper understanding of the most important subject of the week.
