FIFA doesn't have a specific uniform regulation pertaining to tucking. However, the organization's "Guidelines for FIFA Match Officials" handbook instructs officials to make sure the players maintain a "tidy appearance throughout the match (shirts tucked into shorts and socks pulled up)." This is also the reason why players have the shirts tucked in when being checked by the referee before entering the field.



In classic days, almost all footballers had their shirt tucked in. This rise of the untucked look has "been influenced key untuckers over the years, including Manchester United stars Dennis Law and George Best in the 1960s, AC Milan's Franco Baresi and Tottenham Hotspur's Glen Hoddle in the 1980s and France's Zinedine Zidane in the mid-2000s".
