Denmark Forced by FIFA to Put National Flag on Shirt?

Have FIFA struck again? The Denmark national football team wore a slightly different kit than the one that was released.



Denmark's 2022 World Cup kits are a protest against the Qatari government and the country's violations of human rights. Hummel designed a monochrome shirt with the Federation crest and the Hummel logo in the same color as the shirt, making them “invisible”. Hummel and Denmark "don’t want visibility in a tournament that cost the lives of thousands of people".

Because of FIFA? Denmark Debut 2022 World Cup Kit With Danish Flag




The Denmark 2022 World Cup kit worn against Tunisia featured the Danish flag in the center. There is no official source on why Denmark put the flag on the jersey but it is possibly due to FIFA.

There is no rule that forbids Denmark's original kitHowever, we could not find a paragraph in the official FIFA Equipment Regulations that forbids teams to have a monochrome logo only. Indeed, there is even no paragraph that requires teams to have a crest or country flag at all.



In the UEFA Nations League, Denmark did not wear a flag on the jersey.



In the UEFA Euro 2020, Germany were allowed to wear a stealth kit with a monochrome crest only.

Reason not known yetWe hope to receive official information on why Denmark put the flag on their kits. Until then, we can not say if it was FIFA who forced Denmark to add the flag.
