No Room for Racism, Premier League and The Times

Iconic photo used to launch inaugural season recreated with 2019/20 players to unite against racism

There is no room for racism. Anywhere. On the pitch, in our stadiums. Anywhere. The passion we share brings us together. This is everyone's game.

On the opening weekend of the new season, the Premier League has worked with The Times to celebrate the diversity that is such a powerful part of the Premier League’s success. 

Replicating the historic picture that was used in the launch of the inaugural Premier league in 1992, with a player from each club, the League and The Times have recreated it with 20 players from each of the 2019/20 teams.

Making football a welcoming sport

The Premier League is committed to equality and diversity and using the power and popularity of the League to oppose racism in football.

The League's No Room For Racism campaign started in March and, alongside the significant contribution made by Kick It Out since it was formed 25 years ago in tackling discrimination, makes clear that racism is not acceptable in our competition or the wider sport.


If you witness racist behaviour at a match or around a stadium, please report it to the police or a steward.

You can also report racism by using the Kick It Out reporting app (download the iOS app or Android app) or you can use Kick It Out's website reporting form.
