 Fight against racism: Premier League players will no longer kneel

English Premier League players will no longer kneel before every match this season. The players made such a gesture as part of the fight against all forms of racism. “We have decided to choose important kneeling moments throughout the season to highlight our unity against all forms of racism, and in doing so we continue to show solidarity in the name of a common cause,” — said in a statement by the club captains of the Premier League. The Premier League believes the captains' decision will reinforce anti-racism messages as part of the No Racism Campaign. These words are on the sleeves of the players. Premier League players started kneeling at the start of every game in June 2020, a month after the killing of African-American George Floyd in the United States.
