English Premier League

The Premier League has ‘called for peace’ in the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. 

In a statement on Wednesday, the association said it ‘wholeheartedly rejects Russia’s actions.

The statement further revealed that all the clubs will be showing support for the people of Ukraine at all matches this weekend.

“We call for peace and our thoughts are with all those who have been impacted.

“A show of solidarity for Ukraine will be visible at all Premier League matches from Saturday 5 to Monday 7 March. This follows the numerous ways in which clubs have already demonstrated their support.

“The 20 club captains will wear special armbands in Ukrainian colours and fans are encouraged to join players, managers, match officials, and club staff in a moment of reflection and solidarity before kick-off at each game,”

In addition, big screens at stadiums will display “Football Stands Together” against the backdrop of the blue and yellow colours of the Ukrainian flag.
