Millwall players kneel down for Saturday’s game against Derby.
The Millwall players will not kneel for the championship against QPR on Tuesday, but will show hand in hand with the players the fight against discrimination.
This came after Millwall fans booed the players when they kneeled in the Village for the derby defeat on Saturday.
Players of both teams will wear an anti-racist banner together.
The usual sponsor of the Millwall jersey has been replaced by the logo of the anti-discrimination agency Kick It Out.
In his statement, Millwall expressed his conviction that this gesture, which the club hopes to repeat with other visiting teams in the coming weeks and months, will help to unite people from across society in the fight to eradicate all forms of discrimination.
Millwall has a policy of zero tolerance for racist and all other forms of discrimination and wants to make it clear to anyone who thinks so that you are not welcome at this football club. Milwall’s position is, as always, that anyone found guilty of racial violence is banned for life.
The decision was taken after the meeting of the two clubs on Monday: Kick It Out, Show Racism The Red Card, Professional Football Association (PFA), Football Association (FA) and English Football League (EFL).
In its statement, the ELF welcomes the decision of the two clubs to draw attention to the inequalities and discrimination faced by society.
Discrimination in any form is unacceptable and undesirable in our game or in our communities – today or any other day, the statement says.
Actors are often widely criticised and judged negatively for simply doing their job, but here they lead by trying to achieve positive change and should be praised for taking a stand, showing solidarity and setting an example for others.
Kneeling is an act of solidarity, not a political declaration – Southgate.
Some QPR players will be on their knees for a game in the village on Tuesday, although the move was aborted early in the season after club manager Les Ferdinand said his influence had been diluted.
Players, officials and staff at the Premier League and EFL matches since football games resumed in June to show their support for the Black Lives Matter movement for racial equality.
For the first time this season, the day was able to welcome 2,000 fans home after the second national blockade was lifted, but the return of the crowd was marred by whistles, which Milwall said alarmed and saddened the fans.
The Millwall Supporters Club felt that the bombing was not racially motivated, but rather contrary to the political views of blacks.
The Football Association has confirmed that it is investigating an incident in Millwall, as well as a similar case during a second league match between Colchester United and Grimsby Town.
If the actions are found to be discriminatory, fines can be imposed on the clubs.
England’s former defender Micah Richards said live on Monday night on Radio 5 that the bosom was unacceptable.
Millwall fans think this whole movement is becoming political. They say they think their club players shouldn’t get down on their knees to see what the Black Lives issue represents in their minds, he said.
It’s not acceptable if they’re you, but it’s free speech, and that’s their opinion, but I think people put the dark matter of life in a different context and change the real story of what it’s about.
When the players kneel, they don’t say that black life plays a role and that they are better than white life, but they try to say that it is a symbol of equality and unity, so they kneel.

Sources described today’s meeting as complex but productive.
It is clear that the PFA has been critical of the perceived lack of participation of the EWL, a feeling many club members had when they told Dena in advance what they feared on Saturday.
For football, and for Millwall in particular, many questions remain unanswered and it is clear that decisions will not be easy to make.
However, the feeling of despair around the club on Monday was replaced by a mixture of fear and optimism.
No one in the club can be completely sure what will happen if the QPR players kneel down before the game as planned, but the enthusiasm of the social media fans who supported Saturday’s purchase suggests that these measures should be supported.
Millwall can only hope so. Because if Saturday’s events are repeated, even the insiders know that the damage to the club will be catastrophic.
