The Dutch national team will play in a special shirt during the exhibition match against Spain on Wednesday evening. The message #OneLove will adorn the uniforms of the Orange internationals.

“OneLove is the name of the campaign with which the KNVB, together with the government, wants to end racism and discrimination”, the KNVB reported Monday. “Together with more than sixty partners from the football world, the KNVB speaks out for connection and against discrimination in any form whatsoever.”

It has been almost a year since the players of the Dutch national team made a statement against racism with a photo. This happened as a result of the chants at the match between FC Den Bosch and Excelsior in the Kitchen Champion Division.

That game was stopped for fifteen minutes after Excelsior attacker Ahmad Mendes Moreira was treated racially by part of the FC Den Bosch supporters.

Then national coach Ronald Koeman and Georginio Wijnaldum spoke shame of the events in Den Bosch. A few days later, Wijnaldum celebrated a goal in the European Championship qualifying match with Estonia (5-0 win) in which he made a statement against racism together with Frenkie de Jong.

The exhibition match between the Orange and Spain starts on Wednesday in the Johan Cruijff ArenA at 8.45 p.m. The Nations League game with Bosnia and Herzegovina will be played on Sunday, also in Amsterdam, and the away game against Poland is scheduled for next Wednesday in the same tournament.
