Premier League players to take the knee on specific moments

Premier League players will from this coming season limit taking of the knee before kick-off but instead take the knee at specific moments.

This is after the Premier League captains reaffirmed their commitment to fighting racism and all other forms of discrimination in the league.

“We have decided to select significant moments to take the knee during the season to highlight our unity against all forms of racism and in so doing we continue to show solidarity for a common cause.

“We remain resolutely committed to eradicate racial prejudice, and to bring about an inclusive society with respect and equal opportunities for all.” said the captains

Clubs have also vowed to spread the message of no room for racism on their various platforms as a means of relaying the message.

A total of  £238,000 will also be raised and distributed to youth clubs to boost their activities. The amount is higher compared to the £119,000 that was donated last season from royalties donated from the use of “No Room For Racism” on sleeve badges.
