The OneLove initiative was initiated by the Netherlands to use the power of football. To promote inclusion and send a message against discrimination.
Following this, the Netherlands, England, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and Wales have agreed to be part of the OneLove initiative.
As part of the movement, players of these teams will take time to meet migrant workers. Once they arrive in Qatar for the 2022 World Cup.
Most prominently, captains from each of the country’s national teams will wear a distinctive armband. Featuring a heart made up of different colours to mark the campaign.
Speaking about the campaign England captain Harry Kane said: “As captains we may all be competing against each other on the pitch, but we stand together against forms of discrimination.
“This is even more relevant at a time when division is common in society.
“Wearing the armband together on behalf of our teams will send a clear message when the world is watching.”
Kane added: “We stand together against all forms of discrimination.”
The FA continues working for the compensation for migrant workers. “We continue to push for the principle of compensation for the families of migrant workers. Who have lost their lives or have been injured in construction projects,” said FA chief executive Mark Bullingham.
“We are coming together as a group to wear the OneLove armband until the end of the season as a visible show of support for inclusion in football – something we strongly believe in and have consistently supported,” he added.
