Premier League Clubs To Wear Black Lives Matter Badges On Matchday Shirts
English Premier League clubs have unanimously agreed to display a Black Lives Matter badge on matchday shirts as the league restarts on June 17 after a two-month break caused by Coronavirus pandemic.
To be displayed alongside the BLM badge is an NHS badge honouring healthcare workers that have fought endlessly to combat the deadly virus.
These were part of stage-3 return to play protocols approved by representatives of the 20 clubs in the English top-flight at a meeting on Thursday, football correspondent, David Ornstein, said.
He wrote, “Breaking: Premier League matchday protocols have been approved by all 20 clubs. The vote at today’s shareholders meeting produced a unanimous result – there were said to be no complaints from anybody.#ProjectRestart is on course to go ahead as planned from June 17″
As at the time of this report, the English FA is yet to release a statement confirming the protocols.
