The Dbu kit designed by Hummel with its logo blurred as a sign of protest

Ten days before the start of the competition, Fifa has banned Denmark from training in pro-human rights shirts carrying the message ‘Human Rights for All’, during the World Cup in Qatar. Dbu, the Danish Football Association, has long opposed Qatar’s hosting of the World Cup and has been at the forefront in defending migrant workers and LGBT+ rights in the emirate. Fifa bans political messages, and last week urged the teams to concentrate on football and not to drag it into any ideological or political battles: Dbu disputes that this is a political message, but will comply with the ruling to avoid fines and penalties.
