The Danish Football Association is listening to the players and is moving away from wearing white shorts as part of the women’s national team’s uniform on the pitch.
The Denmark national football team will only exceptionally use white shorts in the future. This happens because a group of female players expressed concerns about bleeding through their white shorts if they were menstruating during matches.
– There was a good dialogue between DBU and the players about potential challenges with white shorts, and we agreed that the women’s national team would play in red shorts whenever possible, says Jakob Hoyer, DBU’s communications director.
“They will do so if it is possible to do so in relation to the opponent’s colors and FIFA guidelines,” he adds.
Women’s soccer players in Norway will receive shorts that prevent leaking and bleeding
Ada Hegerberg scored in the cup final for Lyon in white shorts in May:
The Danish team cannot afford to give up white shorts if the opponent has home advantage and plays in red shorts, which is currently the only option. Then they can’t use red pants.
The Danish women’s national team is not the first to abandon white shorts. Manchester City and Everton have already done the same.
The New Zealand national team did the same, among other things. the The English stars demanded the same.
In April, the Norwegian women’s national team received new shorts to prevent leaking and bleeding. A custom-made underpants should solve the problem.
– Let’s hope that these measures solve the problem. If there are still players who are skeptical about the new shorts, then we should sit down and talk to the players. “We are not benefiting from that discouraging performance,” Head of National Teams by Age at the Norwegian Football Association, Heidi Storr, told NRK recently.
