Serie A clubs to be prevented from wearing green kits from the 2022-23 season onwards following a modification in laws.
While the modification will come into effect from next year, top-flight teams in Italy will have one less colour to decide from when designing their new kits each season.
According to Football Italia, the transition comes with concerns from television firmn that green outfield shirts are too similar to the colour of the field and would blend in with the background, making it difficult for viewers and anyone who is colourblind.
While this isn’t a main issue for most Serie A clubs, Sassuolo could be compelled to rethink their club colours, deeming their home kit is green and black stripes.
It is yet uncertain how the new regulations affect I Neroverdi, given that their home strip colors is fairly distinguishable with the black stripes.
And Sassuolo weren’t the only club to wear green kits last season.
For the 2020-21 campaign, Atalanta designed grey-green Christmas Tree shirt while Lazio went with an entirely neon green away kit.
