The football referee shirt through the years
The role of the referee was first introduced into the official football rulebook in 1873, but his job was limited to sitting by the side of the pitch and adjudicating from there. A light, functional referee’s shirt wasn’t needed for this job yet.
It was only when referees became an active part of the game in 1890 that a football referee kit offering full freedom of movement became a necessity.
Traditionally, the referee’s shirt was black, and well into the 1950s referees even wore ties, shirts and suit jackets instead of an athletic referee shirt.
When red, yellow and light grey jerseys were used for the referee uniform in 1994, this was the first time that referees did not wear black for a football World Cup.
Nowadays a coloured shirt is commonplace, but sports referees still have to make sure that they are easily distinguishable from the playing teams.
FIFA also doesn’t allow any other colours than black, red, yellow, green or blue for its official referee shirts.
