The special Eintracht Frankfurt shirt is a modified version of the current 2019-20 away jersey and sees ‘#blacklivesmatter’ in the centre whilst shirt sponsor Indeed have their name underneath much smaller than usual and left of centre.

Frank Hensgens the Managing Director of Indeed Germany said, “Due to the dramatic current development, we will use our global platform to stand against historical and current systemic racism, violence and hatred. We are proud to work with Eintracht Frankfurt, united in a common belief in the importance of diversity and inclusion and in an unshakeable resistance to racism. Surrendering the jersey chest to #blacklivesmatter is a clearly visible sign of our attitude against racism and our support for black people.”

Eintracht Frankfurt sports director Fredi Bobic said, “Every day in our team we demonstrate that skin color, origin and religion do not play a role in a community. Everyone is there for everyone – in the field and outside. This should also be the case in our society, no matter where. As a team and as Eintracht Frankfurt, we stand together against all forms of racism and want to convey this accordingly today.”

The club have used a black and white image on their social media channels not to be confused with the jersey that will be worn this evening.
