Question and Answer – Goalkeeper Gears


Q. May I raise a query regarding the colour of the goalkeeper shirts please? Last year one referee informed me that ALL 3 keeper shirts must be identical even in case of a flying keeper. Can you please confirm this maybe with George as I just received a new set and if this is confirmed I will change the keeper shirts before the prints?

A. In the Laws of the Game there is no specification on the issue. However, both FIFA and UEFA have decided that all Goalkeepers (including flying goalkeeper) use identical shirts.
