Past year sparked outrage amongst the British population after world football's governing body FIFA ruled that poppies were banned from being worn in football matches because they were too political.
Effectively Fifa is about to de-politicise the poppy and as a result remove it from its forbidden list.
The new proposals will permit the wearing of poppy emblems if there is no advance objection from both the teams and the competition organiser.
FIFA is set to lift its ban on the poppy following talks with the football associations of the United Kingdom.
The new law is expected to be passed by November's worldwide games played during the Remembrance weekend when people don Poppies.
United States to provide $32 million in aid to Rohingya fleeing Myanmar
Nearly 40% of all Rohingya villages in Myanmar's Rakhine State are now empty, a government spokesperson confirmed earlier this week.
The new rule will reportedly go through ahead of England's upcoming friendly against Germany, which will be played on November 10.
England is planning to play Germany in a friendly at Wembley around Armistice Day, assuming Gareth Southgate's side do not have to contest a play-off to qualify for the World Cup.
It means that England, or any other team that wants to wear poppies on their shirts, will be able to do so, providing they get their opponents' permission and inform the organisers of the match.
Writing in the Daily Mail, Charles Sale says that Fifa has "come to its senses" over the poppy dispute, while The Times says it's a "significant victory" for the English Football Association.
But now, 10 months later, Federation Internationale de Football Association has sent new guidance that appears to allow symbols and slogans that could be interpreted as political, so long as they are not related to political parties or governments.
A year ago the FA maintained that the Poppy - used since 1921 to commemorate military personnel who have died in war - did not fall into any of these categories.
