Nike Inter Fourth Kit Banned By Serie A Kit Rules

Inter Milan wanted to debut their new Nike 2020-2021 fourth kit in Sunday's match against Cagliari. Now Italian media report that the Lega Serie A did not approve Inter's request to wear the kit.

Inter's special kit is available in FIFA 21 since April 10 2021.

Serie A Does Not Allow More Than Three Colors

As stated in Article 2.2 of the official Serie A Equipment rules (Regolamento Delle Divise Da Gioco), kits are not allowed to feature more than three colors.

"Article 2.2: No element (jersey, (jersey, shorts and socks) of the uniform worn by the outfield players may not contain more than three colors, regardless of the colors used for the lettering (number, player's name, sponsor, etc.)"

The rules also say that if three colors are used one must be the dominant color.

"If three colors are used, one must be clearly dominant on the surface of the jersey, shorts and socks and the socks and the other colors must be clearly secondary colors".

In fact, Serie A allows teams to have a fourth color on their kit if it is used for "small, decorative elements".

"Article 2.4: The use of a fourth color on the game jerseys is authorized, the same color used for the lettering, provided that it covers only a very small part of the jersey's surface and is only used for small, purely decorative elements."
