A major concern for supporters all over the world is that it is illegal to be homosexual in Qatar, leaving LGBTQ+ questioning their own safety in the country. It has been announced that captains at the tournament will attempt to make a stand against the aged viewpoint of the country by wearing an armband that reads ‘One Love’ as part of their campaign.

Speaking about the action, England captain Harry Kane said: “I am honoured to join my fellow national team captains in supporting the important OneLove campaign. As captains we may all be competing against each other on the pitch, but we stand together against all forms of discrimination. 

“This is even more relevant at a time when division is common in society. Wearing the armband together on behalf of our teams will send a clear message when the world is watching.”

Captains of Holland, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and Wales have also joined forces with One Love to make a stand.
