Manchester United have pledged to donate to anti-racism organisation Kick it Out if fans choose to get ‘Black Lives Matter’ printed on the back of their shirts.

Premier League clubs agreed unanimously that players would have ‘Black Lives Matter’ on the back of their shirts instead of their names when the league restarts. United players will have the printing on the back of their shirts for their first game against Tottenham on Friday, June 19, 2020.

The club is offering the service for fans to have the same words on the back of their shirts for £10, and have committed to donating all proceeds from any shirt printing to Kick it Out.

Richard Arnold, the club’s managing director, said: “Manchester United has a long-standing commitment against racism and discrimination, both through our own campaigns and through support of external organisations working in this area.”

“We wanted to take this from being a valuable message of support to real tangible help for the essential work that Kick It Out do in this area.”

The Premier League resumed on Wednesday, June 17, 2020, with a goalless draw between Aston Villa and Sheffield United, before Manchester City defeated Arsenal 3-0.
