Football players announced this on their social networks. The statement was accompanied by a single hashtag #PlayersTogether (Players together). The initiator of the idea was the captain of Liverpool Jordan Henderson, who asked the captains of other clubs to support the initiative and found a positive response from his colleagues.

Football players noted that this project is their own initiative, and is not associated with clubs or nuclear submarines.

Earlier, the Premier League refuted the words of the director of Udinese about the early end of the season.
