Ligue de Football Professionnel against discrimination

As part of the week of education and action against racism and anti-semitism, the Ligue de Football Professionnel and the Ligue 1 Uber Eats and Ligue 2 BKT’s clubs are mobilizing this weekend to send a clear and firm message: Let’s get rid of racism!

On this occasion, an exceptional system will be deployed in all stadiums. On the pitch, all players will be wearing a special jersey on which will appear the symbol of their commitment against racism. In addition, to mark the total involvement of the competitions organised by the LFP, the Ligue 1 Uber Eats and Ligue 2 BKT competition badges will also change to black and white. Referees, coaches and delegates will wear a special armband, while all officials and journalists will be asked to wear a pin.

On their screens and on-air devices, the official broadcasters of Ligue 1 Uber Eats and Ligue 2 BKT will also relay this message of the fight against racism, with, for the first time, the inlay of a logo during the broadcast of matches.

Following on from this weekend of Ligue 1 Uber Eats and Ligue 2 BKT dedicated to the fight against racism, an auction of the jerseys worn by the players will be launched on Wednesday, April 3 on the MatchWornShirt platform. All profits from this sale will then be donated to four anti-discrimination associations.

This communication campaign aimed at the general public is part of an ambitious strategy to combat all forms of discrimination.

Throughout the season, the LFP organised awareness-raising workshops on the fight against discrimination, in particular against homophobia, racism and anti-semitism in all Ligue 1 Uber Eats and Ligue 2 BKT’s clubs. Alongside the anti-discrimination associations and the UNFP, the LFP also visits professional clubs to meet professional players, staff members, managers, but also fans in order to raise awareness of the fight against discrimination.

Additionally, on the judicial level, the LFP has included the fight against discrimination in its statutes. This registration demonstrates the League’s commitments, but also and above all gives it a better basis to file a civil action before the courts.
