This #ThankYou is a symbol of European football’s recognition of key workers on the front lines of the #COVID19 pandemic.

“Football’s gratitude is not limited to words. This unprecedented period has taught us that football really can be an important vehicle for good,” said the UEFA president.

In addition to the ‘Thank You’ message on their shirts, the captains taking part in UEFA club competitions in August are expected to wear ‘No to Racism’ armbands as a reminder of UEFA and European football’s united opposition to any kind of discrimination, whether in sport or wider society.
