Prem To Take The Knee Less

Premier League players will no longer take the knee before every match. Instead they are going to limit the times they do so, in the hope that it will have more effect. The anti-racism gesture will now only be used before certain matches, such as the first and last ones of the season and the ones dedicated to the 'No Room For Racism' campaign. The decision was taken after club captains consulted with their players: "We have decided to select significant moments to take the knee during the season to highlight our unity against all forms of racism and in so doing we continue to show solidarity for a common cause. We remain resolutely committed to eradicate racial prejudice, and to bring about an inclusive society with respect and equal opportunities for all."


South American Quartet Submit World Cup Bid

A joint bid to host the 2030 World Cup has been submitted by Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Paraguay. Uruguay hosted the first ever World Cup in 1930 and are selling their input as a 'homecoming' in the competition's centenary year. The president of the South American football confederation, CONMEBOL, Alejandro Dominguez, said: "There will be more World Cups, but the cup only turns 100 one time, and it needs to come home." Spain and Portugal have also announced a joint hosting bid for the 2030 World Cup, while the UK's Home Nations and Republic of Ireland agreed not to bid for it and instead aim for Euro 2028.
