UEFA Won't Allow Our Home Kit In Europa League

Recommended Posts

In late April 2019, Hummel presented the new Rangers FC home kit for the 2019-2020 season. It was very well received by fans of the Scottish club, but it might have to be changed for UEFA competitions.

Rangers have already qualified for the Europa League first qualifying round. We expect that UEFA will allow them to wear the 'wrong' kit in the first rounds, at least until the play-off matches.

The reason why football government body UEFA will likely not approve the Rangers FC 2019-2020 home kit is pretty simple - it features embossed Rangers' crests all over on the front of it.

According to Article 14 of UEFA's kit rules, clubs are only allowed to print one team emblem on the front on the shirt at chest height with a size not exceeding 100 cm². It is NOT allowed to use it as a graphic print element several times.

The UEFA rule also applies to manufacturers logos - some iconic Adidas and Nike 1990s kits are no more allowed because of the UEFA Kit Regulations.

The latest new UEFA kit regulations were introduced in In September 2018. They are valid from the 2019-2020 season. The UEFA kit rule that affects Rangers FC's 19-20 home kit had been also included in previous kit regulations.

If that's a rule, I'd like to understand what the fuck is the rationale behind it?  What prompted it?  I can understand if it relates to manufacturers or advertisers but club badges???  Just smacks of big brother making up rules for the sake of it.

They will produce kits for for Europe without the badge throughout for sure. This is like Atletico and even the papes not being allowed hoops/stripes on the back in Europe. A lot of teams are/have been affected by this and there have never been stories made out of it.

There's no reason to. Embossed badges such as ours are allowed under article  18. The issue with hoops and stripes is one for making numbering and names clearer for TV viewers.

Yep. Someone has read one section of the rules and misinterpreted it. 

Here's article 18:

I take it ours come under 'embossed' rather than 'tonal prints' otherwise someones getting the spherical spectrophotometer out to see if our Delta L is less than 10!

53.01 The UEFA administration measures the contrast of colours used on playing attire using a spectrophotometer to provide an objective means of decision-making.

53.02 Measurements are taken using a spherical spectrophotometer with an aperture of 6.6mm and a measurement area of 4mm on a white-point of D65 and a Standard Observers Angle of 10¬į. A spectrally neutral 18% Reflectance Grey Card is placed under the single layer of fabric to be measured, and each final measurement is calculated from the average of three readings, at 0¬į, 90¬į and 45¬į.

53.03 The contrast between shirt colours in the number zone must be less than or equal to a Delta L of 25. Colour combinations with a Delta L difference value greater than 25 require a single-colour patch on the back of the shirt to serve as the number zone. 53.04 Player numbers must contrast with the background colour(s) in the number zone by a Delta L value equal to or higher than 30.

53.05 Tonal prints must be included in a tonal variation of the (background) colour(s) of the item of playing attire into which they are incorporated, with a contrast that is less than or equal to a Delta L value of 10. Background colours are measured before the associated tonal print.

53.06 Jacquard weave thread must be included in a thread that must be the same colour as the fabric into which it is woven. The jacquard weave must not dominate, contain a colour that contrasts with, or otherwise affect the distinctiveness of the item of playing attire into which it is incorporated. When measured, the contrast between the two weaves must be less than or equal to a Delta L value of 5. Background colours are measured before the associated jacquard weave thread.

They will design kits for the club to avoid this issue.  Not a big deal I would imagine.

Ours are embossed. The rule itself applies to the club emblem or identifying marks making up a big part of design (ie if the badges on our strip were a different colour from the main body they wouldn't be allowed)
