The Belgian FA (RBFA) took the decision on Monday and informed world football’s governing body of the plans.
Roberto Martínez’s team will play for their three group stage matches in their red home shirt – which does not have a tag. They plan to cover the word ‘love’ with a sticker in case they use their away jerseys.
The Away shirt was part of a Belgian collaboration with dance music festival Tomorrowland, which was announced in June and featured ‘love’ on the inside collar of the shirt.
Sources told ESPN that FIFA has demanded that the Belgian team remove the word “Love” from the collar of their away shirts.
