The English Premier League announced on Wednesday that the anti-racism gesture of taking the knee will be limited to certain matches in the 2022/23 season.

The decision results from meetings between the league and top-flight captains who consulted with their respective teams.

“The players have decided to use specific moments during the upcoming campaign to take the knee, to amplify the message that racism has no place in football or society,” read a statement from the league.
