Soccer Premier League to Display Black Lives Matter Logos on Jerseys

Published

Following a three-month hiatus as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Premier League returns behind closed doors as teams aim to complete the season.

Ahead of the restart, the league has announced that teams will be supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and paying tribute to the NHS by sporting a logo of each on their jerseys.

Players will also have the names on the back of their shirts replaced with the words “Black Lives Matter,” in support of the fight against racial injustice.

Arsenal — who face second-placed Manchester City on the opening night of the league’s return — has shared images of its alternative away strip, a theme that will be on each team’s kit over the first 12 fixtures of the restarted season.

Sheffield United and Aston Villa are up first, marking the start of a 40-day period that will see the remaining 92 league games played out. League leaders Liverpool are currently 25 points clear and could clinch a first title in three decades with victory against Everton on Sunday, should Arsenal reign victorious over Manchester City.
