China has informed the Premier League that they will not allow the broadcast of live games this weekend as teams continue to show solidarity with Ukrainians amid the war with Russia according to BBC.
China is a political ally of Vladimir Putin and has not voted to condemn him for invading Ukraine at the latest United Nations General Assembly.
The BBC understands that the Premier League captains will wear special armbands in Ukrainian colours during games this weekend.
Stadium screens across the UK will display ‘Football Stands Together’ with the flag of Ukraine.
The report further claims that fans have been asked to join ‘a moment of reflection and solidarity before kick-off at each game’.
