Question Number: 29631

Law 4 - Players Equipment 8/25/2015

RE: Under 14

Darian Duran of Phillipsburg, New Jersey United States asks...

Do you think I can wear a long sleeve Nike base layer under my kit on match day.

Answer provided by Referee Joe McHugh

Hi Darian
It all depends on the colours and type
If the undershirt is the same colour as the jersey there is no issue whatsoever about it being worn. If the undershirt is a different colour it will not be an issue if the jersey has long sleeves and the undershirt cannot be seen.
If the jersey has short sleeves and the undershirt has long sleeves in a different colour then the referee might not allow that.
