England And Scotland Will Defy FIFA And Will Be Wearing Poppy’s On Armistice Day

England and Scotland will be playing with black arm bands when they meet up on Armistice Day.


FIFA have said they will not have any poppy’s present as they believe it is a political statement.

Theresa May gave her best speech since taking over David Cameron as prime minister, telling the house that it was “Utterly outrageous” that both teams could not wear a symbol that only shows respect to those that died for us all them years ago.

The laws of the game or law 4 FIFA drawn up and are using to stop England and Scotland playing with a poppy on the shirts or anywhere says the following:

“Equipment must not have any political, religious or personal slogans, statements or images.

“Players must not reveal undergarments that show political, religious, personal slogans, statements or images, or advertising other than the manufacturer’s logo.

“For any infringement the player and/or the team will be sanctioned by the competition organiser, national football association or to be justified by Fifa”

It is likely England and Scotland will face sanctions, it is hard to say what will happen but one thing is certain THEY will be playing with a black arm band with a big poppy on it.
