The world football association FIFA justified the ban on the “One Love” captain’s armband with the World Cup regulations recognized by all participants.

In a statement, the association explicitly emphasized Article 13.8.1 of the Equipment Rules: “For FIFA finals, the captain of each team must wear an armband provided by FIFA.” FIFA supports campaigns like ‘One Love’, but this must be done within the framework of the rules known to all.

The associations from Germany, Denmark, England, Wales, Belgium, Switzerland and the Netherlands had previously announced that their captains would not wear the “One Love” armband as planned. The reason given for this move was FIFA’s threat that the players concerned would receive a yellow card. Fines, as is usually the case with such offenses, would have been accepted.

As a result, the team captains could now wear armbands provided by the world governing body. These should spread a different anti-discrimination message on each match day. The motto of the first match day was “Football unites the world”. On Monday, however, the World Association preferred the slogan “No Discrimination” planned for the quarter-finals. Wearing the motto bandage is not mandatory.

The British government, on the other hand, has criticized the handling of the world football association FIFA with the topic “One Love” captain’s armband. “We share the (English FA) FA’s frustration with FIFA’s decision, which puts the players in a very difficult position,” said a spokesman for Prime Minister Rishi Sunak in London. “In relation to LGBT rights more broadly, Qatar’s policy is clearly not that of the UK government and not one that we would support.”
