Serie A teams can’t have green kits from the 2022/23 season

Giving clubs time to incorporate the new rule into their future designs, the Italian football association, the Lega Serie A, decided to announce the new kit rule a year early.

According to 

Football Italia

the new rule is dictated by television companies as the green kits are too similar to the color of the pitch and could lead to players blending into the background.

Hence, Serie A clubs can no longer have outfield jerseys that are primarily green after a change in regulations.

Atalanta’s

Christmas Tree shirt and

Lazio’s

completely neon green away kit were among examples of the green kits that were used by Serie A clubs last season.

 

According to the rules, if more than three colors are used, one must be clearly dominant across the jersey, shorts, and socks, and according to the new rule, the dominant color might not be green.

Sassuolo's

home kit is also green but with black stripes. It is uncertain at this stage whether they will be forced to change colors considering their strip is not all green.

 Among the famous Serie A green kits were

Juventus

’ bright green kit during the 2014/15 season. 

Napoli

previously wore a camouflage-inspired design and

AC Milan

similarly called upon a dark green template.
