Why Is Premier League Going Forward With ‘No Room For Racism’ Badges

During the break due to coronavirus, the killing of George Floyd happened in America. The subject of racism became prominent, and clubs wore the badge of Black Lives Matter when the season resumed. However, now the Premier League wants to take this movement forward and bring change. It said:

β€œThis is the first time the badge will feature on players’ and officials’ kit throughout the season and will act as a constant reminder of the commitment by the Premier League, its clubs, players and PGMOL to eradicate racism.”

β€œThis initiative will build on the momentum created last season when, in consultation with the players, ‘Black Lives Matter’ appeared on kits for all the games following the restart. The League will also continue to support players who ‘take a knee’ at matches.”
