Interesting things about football uniforms throughout the history (Part 1)

In addition to professional factors, football also attracts the audience with elements outside the pitch. In this article, let’s learn about interesting things about the football uniform throughout the history.

Football players’ outfits not only distinguish between teams, to protect players from injuries, but now they have become fashionable outfits.

The beginning

At the beginning of the sport, the players still do not have the current neat clothes, instead they play with long clothes. The designs at the time were also very simple, without the diverse patterns or colors to distinguish the teams. The first shirts were sewn with wool and sometimes the players came out with shirts.

Football outfit in the early 20th century

Today we get used to the players playing with the numbers on their backs. But before, players had never thought of printing numbers on the back of their shirts. In 1928, English coach Hernert Chapman was the first to propose the idea of ​​printing numbers on the backs of players’ shirts, initially used only on the training ground.

It was not until the 1938-39 season that all clubs in the English Football Federation were required to wear a number. Fixed numbering for each player during the tournament is only applied from the 1954 World Cup.

The German team at the 1954 World Cup (Source: Internet) The number of shirts apart from distinguishing the players on the pitch is also something for them to assert their own personality. In addition to the number of shirts that have become a brand such as Ronaldo number 7, Messi number 10 or Kaká number 22, many players impress with special numbers like Ivan Zamorano with 1 + 8 or Bixente Lizarazu with shirt number 69.

For a long time in the 20th century, the image often seen on the world grass was the players playing with very short shorts and short-sleeved T-shirts without textures. At that time football outfit was really very simple with traditional cotton fabric.

Arsenal is probably the special team of the Premier League right now, when it witnessed the change of captain position, which could become a turning point for a new dynasty: Mikel Arteta replaced Unai Emery.
