Serie A is scheduled to implement a new rule that will prohibit football clubs from wearing specific uniforms.
The new rules would prevent clubs from using green away uniforms and will only allow one striped uniform per squad.
The Italian league has opted to implement the rule in an effort to aid with virtual advertising.
Some athletes wearing green uniforms had been “disappearing” from the screen when matches were being televised.
Clubs will also need to make sure that their away uniforms are substantially distinct from their home uniforms.
The away uniform must be generally light if the home kit is predominately dark, and vice versa.
If stripes are striped or checkered, the substitute shirt cannot have any of the same colors on it, unless they are used sparingly.
Beginning with the 2023–24 season, the rule will be in effect, and starting with the 2024–25 campaign, it will be required.
Sassuolo of Serie A will be able to preserve their customary uniform because the color green will still be permitted on the team’s home uniforms.
Additionally, many teams have worn stripes on their uniforms in the past, including league heavyweights AC Milan, Inter Milan, and Juventus.
But going forward, if they wish to continue wearing their customary home shirts, their alternates cannot have stripes.
The new regulations require clubs to provide goalkeepers with three options in order to prevent collisions.
When Serie A tried to restrict green uniforms in 2021, the ban was attempted, but it was unsuccessful at the time.
The claim at the time was that television networks had complained that players’ green uniforms had made them look like grass.
Italian Serie A
The Serie A is a professional league tournament for football clubs at the top of the Italian football league system. The winner receives the Scudetto and the Coppa Campioni d’Italia. It is also known as the Serie A TIM due to national sponsorship with TIM.
Since the 1929–30 season, it has been run as a round-robin competition for more than 90 years. Up until the creation of the Lega Serie A in 2010 for the 2010–11 season, it had been run by the Lega Calcio and the Direttorio Divisioni Superiori.
The Serie A is frequently portrayed as the most tactically and defensively sound national league and is recognized as one of the top football leagues in the world.
The Italian Football Championship’s current structure was changed from having regional and interregional rounds to a single-tier league beginning with the 1929–1930 season.
The FIGC formally recognizes championship titles gained prior to 1929 and accords them the same weighting as titles conferred after that year.
The 1945–46 season, which saw the round-robin delayed and the league split into two geographical groups due to the effects of World War II, is also not taken into account statistically, although having an official championship.
The G-14, which from 2000 to 2008 represented the biggest and most prestigious European football clubs, included Juventus, AC Milan, and Inter Milan, three of the most famous clubs in the world. The first two were also founding members of the league’s successor organization, the European Club Association (ECA).
One of the most illustrious football leagues in the world is Serie A. More than any other league in the world, 42 of the 100 best footballers in history as voted by FourFourTwo magazine in 2017 played in Serie A.
Juventus has produced the most World Cup winners (27), followed by Inter (20), Roma (16), and Milan (10), who are ranked third, fourth, and ninth in that list, respectively.
