Laws often have the last say when it comes to kit designs. Issues can be brought about by either country laws or traditions, or sometimes a federation’s expectations when it comes to particular details.
Cameroon are the only team that had not one but two football kits banned. Others include Brazil and Argentina designs.
Futaa has taken a quick look at five banned football kits…
1. Fiorentina 1993-94 - Lotto Away Kit
The kit was banned after the identification of a recognizable Nazi symbol to the club.
2. Cameroon 2002 - PUMA Home Kit
FIFA banned this sleeveless kit over concerns about the inability to attach the tournament patch on the sleeves.
3. Cameroon 2004 - PUMA Home Kit
The West Africans produced this one-piece suit kit, but FIFA said: "all shirts and shorts must be separate items of clothing.”
4. Brazil 2013 - Nike Third Kit
The Brazil federation decided to ban this kit due to an ancient rule on shirts that only uses yellow for the home shirt and blue for the away shirt.
5. Argentina 1994-95 - Adidas Home kit
This kit looks like the proper Argentina traditional home kit but on closer look, it has black outlines and that was the exact problem the Argentina FA had.
What do you think of all these rules on kits?
