colored T-shirts made of synthetic materials, in which the players out on the field, and is called the "T-shirts", appeared only in the modern history of the game, with the development of high technologies.Originally same, especially in the times of the British Queen Victoria, were used instead of t-shirts is quite civilized shirts or sweaters.It took a lot of time to fix the existing and still rule that the players of a team shall have the same shirt, the color of which is radically different to the color of outerwear rivals.It is especially difficult for goalk
eepers.Because of their shape, even in summer they were black sweater made of wool.

serious problem for the fans, judges, and even the players themselves lack was quite usual nowadays gaming rooms.They appeared before the Second World War and, by the way, were not immediately accepted.But since the 70s of the last century clubs started using T-shirts as advertising space, placing them brands and logos of sponsors.Today, when the myth of the opportunity to engage in sports professionally and remain an amateur, had disappeared along with the Soviet Union and its legends, it is also no surprise.Identical upper-shirt with short sleeves (many are, and second, the lower tank top) are only the fielders.The goalkeeper also need T-shirt or sweater with long or short sleeves, too.Moreover, the color should be different from the T-shirts are not just rivals, but also teammates.


In everyday life this kind of professional soccer equipment has a common name of "cowards."A kit usually consists of him "podtrusniki" or "Cycling" - according to the rules of the same color shorts.They were sold along with shirts and are a key element of fitness.Initially, again in good old Great Britain, the players played in the pants, and sometimes white (this distinguished senior gentlemen).At the beginning of the last century instead of trousers were wide and long, covering the knees shorts.And they kept the belt using the belt or suspenders.The modern form of soccer shorts, along its length, and a cut is quite reminiscent of shorts, even sports, began to acquire in the middle of the last century.In shorts, especially in hot weather, and sometimes play goalkeepers.But mostly they prefer tight pants with goalie pads that protect the legs in numerous jumps and falls.

leggings and boots

Like T-shirt with shorts, leggings - high, knee-length socks - available in different colors.Most often, men's soccer team used white or blue socks, but the girls choose brighter colors, albeit sometimes discordant with the rest of the form.The main objective is to close gaiters mandatory for any player guards.Goalkeepers playing pants, leggings usually tuck.By the way, the first players also ran the pants leggings.And only with the advent of short steel wear them on your feet and shields.

used in the twenty-first century football lightweight and durable comfortable leather shoes of different colors with numerous spikes for all coatings and seasons, and the name "boot" has not always existed.The ancestors of the boots, which easily and hit the ball and just run, were heavy and high English boots of rough skin that covered the ankles.Compare their possible only with the army bertsami.In addition, they were very traumatic.And for that fell on the path of an opponent, and for the owner of a sports shoe.

Hats and gloves

Unlike again from the nineteenth century, when the caps and even cylinders is an essential feature of the game, today's hats are not included in the mandatory set of football uniforms.But not under the ban, and sometimes even used.In particular, in late autumn, when the cold come, many players head to protect from frost sports hats.A very hot and fraught with "sunstroke" weather some goalies like to remember the times of the legendary Soviet goalkeeper Lev Yashin and stand at the gate in caps.More specifically, in a so-called caps.

A similar situation exists with gloves.The only difference is that if the fielders wear woolen gloves only in the cold season, not to freeze your fingers to protect the goalkeepers of the same finger injury during training and match use gloves made of latex, and on an ongoing basis.
