8 Football Kits That Were Banned

In the football world today, the jersey industry is a booming business as clubs each typically release three different versions at the start of every season. Here, however, are eight kits that were banned over the years!

Click through the gallery above to see eight football jerseys that were officially banned, according to Cult Kits.

In 2013, Brazil and Nike released an incredible blacked-out third kit that unfortunately never saw the light of day. After its unveiling, the country’s football association declared the jersey would not be used.

This was, according to Cult Kits, due to Brazil’s longstanding policy of using the iconic yellow home shirt and the blue away shirt for matches on the road. Though it was put on sale following a limited release, the shirt failed to make it to the field.

Cameroon, in 2002, were told by FIFA that their famous sleeveless Puma shirt did not match certain requirements. The vest was intended to be worn at the FIFA World Cup that year, but the Indomitable Lions were made to ditch the unique design.

The African giants faced further scrutiny two years later when they released a onesie-styled kit, which, although banned from being used in competitions organised by the sport’s governing body, was used at the 2002 and 2004 Africa Cup of Nations.

In the early 1990s, Fiorentina were left with egg on their face when observers pointed out that an away shirt of theirs closely resembled the swastika symbol.
