Premier League confirms players will wear 'Black Lives Matter' on back of shirts

As Express Sport reported, players will have the words replacing the names on the back of their shirts, as well as another logo on their shirts for the rest of the campaign, and a badge thanking the NHS for their work during the COVID-19 crisis.

The players, who pushed for the move this week, said in a statement: “We, the Players, stand together with the singular objective of eradicating racial prejudice wherever it exists, to bring about a global society of inclusion, respect, and equal opportunities for All, regardless of their colour or creed.

“This symbol is a sign of unity from all Players, all Staff, all Clubs, all Match Officials and the Premier League #blacklivesmatter #playerstogether.”

The Premier League added: “We stand alongside players, clubs, the FA, English Football League, the Professional Footballers Association, the League Managers Association, the Professional Game Match Officials Ltd and all those who oppose discrimination in any form.”
