The Premier League players are set to replace their names on their shirts with ‘Black Lives Matter’ for the first 12 games of the resumed 2019/20 season.
According to Sky Sports, a Black Lives Matter logo will be on the shirts for the remainder of the season, along with a badge thanking the NHS for their work during the coronavirus pandemic.
Premier League also says it will support players who take a knee before or during games as matches resume during the coronavirus pandemic.
The players 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.”
