Germany men's team violated UEFA rules by wearing women's kit

The German Men's national team wore the Euro 2022 Women's kit on Tuesday, according to Footyheadlines.

It was well welcomed by fans - but the kit that the German Men's team should have been modified to apply to UEFA's Equipment Regulations.

The kit worn by the German Men's national football team featured just two stars instead of four - the Women's won two World Cup titles (2003, 2007).

A look at the official UEFA Equipment Regulations reveals that UEFA actually forbid Men's and Women's teams to interchange stars. This is defined in "Article 33 Domestic titles and stars".

Article 33 says that "All of an association’s men’s or women’s representative teams may wear one star on their playing attire for each FIFA World Cup title won by the association’s corresponding (i.e. men’s or women’s) senior national team."

Youth teams are allowed to wear the stars of the respective (Men's or Women's) senior teams but Men's teams can not wear the stars of Women's (and vice versa).

Usually, UEFA are very strict with their Equipment Regulations. Germany could get a fine by UEFA for wearing a kit with two stars.
