Serie A Bans Teams From Wearing Green Kits From 2022/23 Season Amid Concerns That Players Would Blend In With The Grass

It's not easy being green. Serie A clubs will no longer be able to wear green kits from the 2022/23 campaign onwards following a change in regulations.

According to Football Italia, the rule will come into effect from next year amid concerns from television companies that green outfield shirts are too similar to the colour of the pitch and would blend in with the background.

It means Sassuolo could be forced to rethink their club colours as their home kit is green and black stripes.

Sassuolo weren't the only team to don green kits last season. Atalanta created a grey-green Christmas tree shirt, while Lazio went with a neon green away kit.

The rule changes will affect socks and shorts, too, so if three colours are used, one must be clearly dominant across the shirt, bottoms and socks.

On the subject of kits, Inter Milan's first away shirt in 26 years without the Pirelli sponsorship has been leaked ahead of the 2021/22 season.

Tyre manufacturer Pirelli ended 26 years of sponsorship with Inter at the end of last term.
