Frankfurt’s sporting director Fredi Bobic said the entire team wanted to show it was “together against all forms of racism” amid widespread protests around the world, sparked by the death of George Floyd.
The team’s regular shirt sponsor had the hashtag #blacklivesmatter emblazoned across the front, whilst Bayern players once again wore t-shirts supporting the cause during the warmup.
“Racism, xenophobia, antisemitism and homophobia have no place within the Eintracht family and must have no place in a liberal society.”
In addition to its warmup jerseys, Bayern displayed its #RedsAgainstRacism initiative on advertising boards around the stadium and on corner flags.
The host eventually won the game 2-1 to reach the German Cup final for the third consecutive year.
A number of other sporting figures across the world have stood in solidarity with those protesting racial injustice.
