Austria Wien Forced to Release One-Off Kit

We have kit news from the Europa Conference League as it seems that Austria Wien were forced to release a one-off kit today. They played Hapoel Be’er Scheva away and lost 4-0.

Austria Wien 22-23 One-off Kit

This is the Austria Wien 2022-23 one-off shirt, made by Nike.

The Nike Austria Wien 2022-23 one-off shirt is as simple as it gets, based on the Park VII template. What is basically a white t-shirt has all the proper logos printed on it, along with a black Swoosh.

White shorts and socks complete the new Nike Austria Wien 2022-2023 one-off kit.

The reason for wearing this kit is likely due to the red on Austria Wien's away kit clashing with Hapoel's home shirt. The simple one-off kit avoids this problem, which originates from UEFA's strict kit regulations.

Ludogorets Wear Same One-Off Kit

Oddly enough, Ludogorets also wore a one-off kit in today's 3-1 loss at Roma.

The Nike Ludogorets Razgrad 2022-23 one-off jersey is also based on the Park VII teamwear shirt in white. It also comes without a main sponsor, just like the other kits the club have worn in the Europa League this season.

The reason behind this kit release is not as clear, as the black on the sleeves of Ludogorets' 22-23 away shirt does not properly clash with Roma's home kit.

Unlike with Austria Wien's situation, we cannot say for certain whether or not UEFA had a hand in this matter.

What do you make of the Austria Wien's and Ludogorets' one-off kits? Should they just have worn their regular away shirts? Comment below.
