Premier League players to have ‘Black Lives Matter’ replacing names on shirts

Premier League players will have their names replaced by ‘Black Lives Matter’ on their shirts for the first 12 games of the resumed 2019/20 season.

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.

The players released a statement which read: “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.”

The Premier League says it will support players who take a knee before or during matches.
