Real Madrid Wears Modified Kit Font In Champions League

Real Madrid wore their Cup exclusive 20-21 kit typeface that was released on Friday, 31 July 2020. However, the font worn by Real Madrid against Shakhtar featured much thinner lines than the one presented and available to buy.

Numbers may contain lines up to 2mm wideIn fact, it is certain that it was UEFA and their kit rules that forced Real Madrid to update the font. UEFA's Equipment regulations about numbers state that "Numbers may contain breathing holes or lines up to 2mm wide and they may be divided into up to three parts, provided the divisions do not exceed 2mm".

The Real Madrid Women's team is wearing the standard font in their matches, as there is not such a rule in the Spanish Women's First Division.
