As part of the ongoing fight against racism, Premier League clubs have agreed to mark the Black Lives Matter campaign on their first games back next week.
As protocols and plans are being put in to place for the return of football, one of the discussions today surrounded what clubs can do to support the movement, and although it is yet to be officially confirmed, there has been some reliable information published on the matter.
The reliable Athletic writer David Ornstein tweeted the plans this afternoon.
He confirms that Chelsea, as well as the rest of the Premier League clubs, could have the Black Lives Matter badge displayed on the front of their match day shirts alongside the NHS logo, and they could even replace the names on the back of their shirts with ‘Black Lives Matter’.
Premier League clubs also agreed a #BlackLivesMatter badge will be displayed on the front of matchday shirts alongside an #NHS badge. For the 1st round of games, player names will be removed from the back of shirts & replaced with Black Lives Matter #ProjectRestart @TheAthleticUK https://t.co/hRHkcB6bQN
