I watch soccer myself as well, so I'm kinda used to the sponsors names being in the middle of the jersey. It doesn't bother me too much, although I do wish the teams logo was a little larger on the jerseys.

I'm not saying that I can't tell white and black apart, I'm saying that if I were to turn on a game of, say, Man City vs. Arsenal, it might take me a little while to figure out if Man City is the team with light blue shirts and Honda logos or the team with black shirts and Motorola logos (I know these probably aren't correct I'm just making this up). I'm not that familiar with the individual players or anything so I have to wait until the commentators give me a clue as to which team is which, which might be a few minutes. Some people probably know ahead of time what the "team colors" are, but if you don't, it's confusing. The color schemes aren't as straight-forward as hockey either. They don't seem to really use reverse color schemes for home and away jerseys, they're just totally different. For example, I just looked up Arsenal - their home jerseys are red with white stripes on the sleeves, their away jerseys are yellow with black pinstripes, and their third jersey is just solid blue. Unless you're a fan, you're not going to be able to follow all of this crap, and since their team logo is just a tiny patch on the upper left of the jersey, you're not going to be able to see it unless they do a close-up on a player. Hockey teams at least usually stick to two or three main recognizable colors, and then reverse them for home and away... although third jerseys are usually completely different.


I am sorry but this is just like any sport if you have a limited knowledge of what you are watching. My Dad watches hockey with me, he has never followed it until i started watching and playing (more playing so he could understand what he was watching when he came to my games), and he couldn't tell you who was who if you were just watching a game.

He has picked up bits and pieces as time has gone on but still struggles from time to time. For example the other day a family friend showed him a Montréal Canadians jersey pin he had, my dad has watched them play quite a few times, and he still didn't have a clue what team it was. This is one of the most recognisable jerseys in the NHL.

Also with the colours of shirts like Arsenals most of the time the away or third colour shirt has something to do with the clubs history (this has been lost a bit of late but still has an influence)so unless you have a particular knowledge of a football clubs history it wont mean that much to you. (For example in the 50's Arsenal had to have an away kit to play in the fa cup, they chose yellow.

The reason they vary so much from the primary colours of the home kit is because they need to be different as part of the rules. For example if Arsenal had a red home kit and a white away kit and Man united had a red home kit and white away kit and they were playing each other, its still not clear who is who (since there is no requirement to wear your away kit if you are actually playing away unlike the NHL). But if for example arsenal have a Red home, yellow away and united have a red home and blue away kit then they become easier to distinguish.

In hockey it is easy to figure out because the jerseys are all designed differently, teams use unique color palettes, and logos are large. Sure, if you're watching your first hockey game ever, you might be confused because you aren't familiar with any team logos or colors. But it's easy to pick up fast. Soccer is much more confusing for the reasons I stated, plus you can add on that since the field is larger the players are harder to see on TV. Soccer fields also generally look the same, while hockey rinks have team logos in the center, plus other unique features that help you distinguish them.

Also with the colours of shirts like Arsenals most of the time the away or third colour shirt has something to do with the clubs history (this has been lost a bit of late but still has an influence)so unless you have a particular knowledge of a football clubs history it wont mean that much to you. (For example in the 50's Arsenal had to have an away kit to play in the fa cup, they chose yellow.

But if for example arsenal have a Red home, yellow away and united have a red home and blue away kit then they become easier to distinguish.


This only supports my point. It's confusing. Why can't each team just have 2-3 unique colors and build their jerseys around those? Also, why aren't their more unique designs? Some of them have stripes, but you don't see many of the curved patterns or designs that you see on a lot of hockey jerseys. From what I've seen, a lot of soccer jerseys are just solid colors. Why not design them better to distinguish one from another?

Even if the NHL licensed this, the Devils would never have them as long as Lou is around because of the huge Prudential logo. Not gonna happen. Even in the minors there’s no sponsorship on any of the jerseys (and in the ECHL at least, pretty much everyone has sponsors on the jerseys, if only on the back, at the bottom).

Frankly I wouldn’t be interested in a Prudential jersey, which is what it looks like…

That has not stopped Red Bulls supporters from buying jerseys.

Fact is outside the major North American sports, advertising on jerseys are quite common and no one really cares all that much about the sponsors on it.

I think it was Brodeur - who during the lockout was it, involved in some talks with some folks about going this route to raise revenue in the game. Wasn't there a mockup for a goalie jersey with Prudential Logo on it?

Gotta say, this is having me wonder what some soccer/football jerseys would look like as hockey jerseys. Especially my favorite soccer team from WPS Sky Blue FC haha. :)

These jersey are all pretty nice... EXCEPT OURS. The sash on the red jersey looks so terrible, and I guess the white prudential one is passable...but compared to the other jerseys ours is so plain and not unique at all. The Oilers one is pretty horrendous too, but man whoever made these really skimped on our design. I would like to see a revamped Jersey without the sash.

Most, if not all of the AHL teams have a sponsor logo on the front of the jerseys, they just aren't the primary logo

People would say the same about football, i think its just a case of you have grown up with hockey, and therefore find it easily recognisable to you and you can't see why coming in from a completley new perspective would be difficult. From a TV perspective its difficult to see from a wide angle, but these days there are so many zoom angles it only takes about 2 minutes to see a shirt up close.


This only supports my point. It's confusing. Why can't each team just have 2-3 unique colors and build their jerseys around those? Also, why aren't their more unique designs? Some of them have stripes, but you don't see many of the curved patterns or designs that you see on a lot of hockey jerseys. From what I've seen, a lot of soccer jerseys are just solid colors. Why not design them better to distinguish one from another?


They cant for the exact reasons i mentioned, your home colours have to be fundimentally different to you away or 2nd and third shirt colours to avoid colour clashes. If your home kit is blue and their home kit is red whats the point i wearing your alternate shirt?

Also with the number of proffesional football teams in opperation, it becomes very difficult to design a truley unique kit with unique colours. Also you wont see many curves or interesting designs in football, as most of the kits are based around the traditional kits which were originally designed over 100 years ago in some cases (most cases really) and people like their tradition.

Also remember that the shorts and socks are also key to identify other teams, its not just the shirt.

I do agree btw that it is slightly more difficult to pick out football shirts, but again i think its just a case of what you are used to and what you have been brought up watching.

Oh I'm sure all the AHL teams - except Albany - have them. But those are still team jerseys. These things aren't Devil jerseys, they're Prudential jerseys.

The Kalamazoo Wings wear warmup jerseys that are McDonalds golden arches. Front and back. But those are warmups; not game jerseys. That might be an interesting trend.
