In a tweet by the club, Spurs have reinstated their support for the Black Lives Matter campaign and revealed that they would be wearing warm-up shirts and matchday shirts with BLM messages/graphics.

This comes following the worldwide protests and demonstrations as a result of the death of George Floyd while in police custody last month.

Many players from across the Premier League, including Spurs stars like Harry Kane and Heung-min Son, have shown their support to the campaign on social media.

However, with the Premier League restarting on June 17, players and clubs will be able to show their public support for the campaign as they return to our live television screens.

Taking a knee was originally seen in the NFL as San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick looked to show support for the BLM movement back in 2016.

Spurs Web Opinion

It is good to see Spurs showing their public support for this movement. However, it is equally as pleasing to see the Premier League stand strong on their morals of equality and allow for BLM branding on the shirts of both warm-up and matchday shirts.
