IFAB to lift poppy ban after Federation Internationale de Football Association revises provisions over shirt use

Fifa - world football's governing body - is expected to formalise the decision following representation from the UK's four global associations.

According to Sky Sports News, FIFA have sent out a draft proposal to its member nations with revised provisions that could see the poppy permitted if opposing teams and the competition organiser for the relevant match both accept its use in advance.

The BBC reported that Federation Internationale de Football Association is set to lift the ban on the poppy ahead of the next round of global matches in November.

England and Scotland were punished for attempting to circumvent (unsuccessfully) the law by wearing the poppy on a black armband, while Wales were stung for allowing some of their fans to wear the poppy inside the stadium.

England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales were all fined by FIFA past year for displaying poppies at 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches.
