China issues tattoo ban for football players

Pro-footballers in China have to cover their tattoos from now on.

General Administration of Sport of China (GAS) has issued a statement recently, saying professional footballers who play in the Chinese Super League or China national team are prohibited from getting tattoos and those who already have tattoos are advised to remove them.

The statement reads: “

National teams at all levels will strictly implement the relevant requirements of the management measures.

“This will demonstrate the positive spirit of Chinese football players and set a good example for society. The national team and the U23 national team athletes are strictly prohibited from having new tattoos, and those who already have tattoos are advised to remove them themselves.”
