Designed as a symbol of solidarity and shared identity, Nike has unveiled an England 2019 Black History Month jersey in celebration of the most influential black British athletes.
The kit is being worn by the England senior men’s national team — including Raheem Sterling, Tammy Abraham, Marcus Rashford, Callum Wilson, Harry Kane, Jadon Sancho and Jordan Henderson — during the England national football team international camp this October.
The England 2019 Black History Month shirt aligns with Nike’s belief that sport has the power to unite and that all athletes should be treated equally.
This October, Nike celebrates black British athletes and their contribution to sport across an array of avenues that include providing pathways to success, celebrating the community through sport and integrating solidarity as a symbol through the Nike brand.
While February is Black History Month in the United States it is celebrated in October in the UK.
