UEFA Referee Kits 2015/16 (adidas)

After the farce of this season's UEFA Champions League matchday 1 related to the match officials' grey trousers, when the idealistic term "the invisible referee" was attributed a truly new meaning, adidas has made public the referee kits for the Champions League 2015/16 campaign.


UEFA Champions League referee will soon handle their games in the traditional colours black ('night navy', yellow ('yellow), red ('bright red') and blue ('bright cyan') similar to the REFEREE 14 jerseys. The trousers will be coloured in 'night navy' as well.
And that's how they look:


Do you like them?

  1. Except for those horrible white stripes (blue jersey) I really like them. :-)

    much better than the kits in automnal. much worse than the kits of "referee 14". i will never unterstand why there are extra kits for champions and europe league.

    it's good that there are 4 instead of 3 colours again. the blue one is not really my taste.

    will they wear the new kits already in spring? or starting in summer with the new season?

    1. Probably in the new season.
      Well, I guess as usual money is the reason :)

      Hopefully, hopefully, hopefully. But I guess UEFA doesn't want again that ref and players wear the same sockcolour. Strange.

    Can you explain what happened in Bundesliga with Neuer, Boateng, the penalty saved and the ban extended?

    1. If a player is sent off for DOGSO, the common practice in Germany is to ban him for one match, if the penalty (or free kick) leads to a goal. Otherwise he is banned for two matches.
      In the Boateng case, Neuer saved the penalty and therefore the second case applies and Boateng is out for two matches.

      At first, even a three match ban was suggested, because Boateng was sent off during the last year and the ban can be extended for repeating offenders. This clause actually doesn't apply for DOGSO, therefore Bayern succesfully appealed against the three matches.

  5. I have to say the best champions league kits were 12/13 IMO. These are OK, but the white trim is bad

  6. Looking at the German appointments for the weekend, Aytekin could have an Europa League match next week, because he is assisted by two FIFA assistants (Häcker, Achmüller), what is not usual. Brych is totally missing and seems to be replaced on short notice (Borsch/Lupp have a game together with Dankert). Gräfe has a match in the 2nd divsion on Friday without FIFA assistants and Zwayer is 4th official on Saturday, so both are possible for EL, but not likely.

    1. As for next week's Europa League matches, Austrian Robert Schörgenhofer - accompanied by Matthias Winsauer, Roland Brandner, Dominik Ouschan, Rene Eisner and Richard Hübler - will have one.

      Delete
    2. Maybe Brych, Borsch, Lupp, Zwayer (4th in Leverkusen) and Dankert will handle Paris-Chelsea?

      Delete
    3. Hm, but why not Brych himself as referee in Leverkusen? Furthermore in all his matches this season, Fritz was one AAR and he has a match on Wednesday (3.Liga).

      Delete
    4. Fritz made a crucial mistake in Bilbao, so maybe it's Zwayer's turn this time (but of course, it can mean all or nothing).
      As for Brych, he had a match last weekend - the same does not count for Dankert, whose standard AR1 Häcker is not available for this match (he had Wolfsburg-Hoffenheim last weekend) and Rohde had a match last weekend as well. We'll see.

      @ Peter: Yes, Schörgenhofer is back in the knock-out-stage. After a very good year 2014, he will get a new chance by UEFA, maybe also in UCL groupstage 15/16.

      Delete
    6. Frankly speaking, I do not understand UEFA's policy concerning Austria's now three First Group referees: Robert Schörgenhofer only got two low-profile group stage matches in the Europa League, Harald Lechner also only a meaningless second after his more honorable first one, Oliver Drachta was promoted without having whistled any important matches this season whereas Alexander Harkam seems to stagnate after some promising appointments last spring. Robert Schörgenhofer will become 42 years of age this year - in my opinion, a second chance for him could only be explainable with an attempt to appoint officials from as many different countries as possible for EURO 2016 (maybe with an Austrian team solely acting as Fourth officials).

    7. Verstehe es auch nicht ganz, bin ganz deiner Meinung außer, dass Lechners erstes EL-Spiel in Florenz weniger ehrenhaft war. (7,9) Drachta-Aufstieg hat wohl alle umgeworfen, hätte da noch eher mit Harkam gerechnet. Schörgenhofer hat ein internationales Top-Jahr hinter sich, sehr gute Noten bekommen, muss sich eben irgendwo widerspiegeln. Insgesamt aber alles sehr schwer nachvollziehbar, ja. LG aus Tirol :)

  8. Capital One Cup Final (01/03/2015)

    Chelsea - Tottenham Hotspur
    Referee: Anthony Taylor
    Assistant Referee 1: Lee Betts
    Assistant Referee 2: Dave Bryan
    Fourth Official: Craig Pawson
    Reserve AR: Andy Halliday

    Great appointment for Taylor and co. Thoroughly deserved appointment, he's having a great season. Here's hoping he gets an Europa League appointment...

  9. What do you think about it? Penalty kick or play on?

    1. Penalty for me, even though the attacker accepts the contact.

      Delete
    2. Surely, can be whistled... However, very tight to judge the intensity of the pull. Attacker and slow-motion camera definitively adds to the effect much more than in reality is...




      Delete
    3. I agree, the penalty can be whistled but one can argue that the reason of PLAY ON was attacker's behavior.

      Delete
    4. Thanks for your opinions. 50/50 for me, so it's acceptable to let play on.

  10. Good Performance of Sandra Braz Bastos, maybe 2 missed YC. Assistant Ferrera is reported to have got offside goal wrong, but I have not seen a reply

  11. OT

    It seems as if Marco Rodríguez has decided to dedicate his next years to football as a team manager. He has already attained a degree in that and allegedly sat in on Diego Simeone's training sessions at Atlético Madrid.

  12. QUIZ:
    Who is the only women (hopefully to be succeeded more frequently by Steinhaus) to referee a UEFA men's match?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I would be very surprised, if Steinhaus succeeded her. Her performances in the second German division are not good enough for a promotion to the Bundesliga and she is already 35.

      Delete
    2. I have to say I haven't watched her in 2.Bundesliga!, but in WCL & WWC Qualfiers she has looked good enough.

    2. Indeed, AR1 if I remember correctly.

  15. The other way around:
    Who was the last male referee in a women's match
    a) at an Euopean Championchip?
    b) at a World Cup?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. b) should be Alain Hamer.

      Delete
    2. I think that Niclas refers to Alain Hamer's participation in the World Cup 1995. Until 1996, however, male referees were also considered for women's games at the Olympic Tournament with Pierluigi Collina and José María García–Aranda Encinar having handled one group stage match each.

      Delete
    3. Right. And if we speak about EURO 1995, most referees were male and not female. Today's UEFA observer Ilkka Koho was the last male referee in a women's EURO match as he refereed the final between Germany and Sweden.

      Delete
    4. I think, there is an other referee, who was the last at a WC (three hours later than Hamer...)

      And I didn't think of the Olympic games. So a rather unknown record for Collina (tied with Al Mehannah from Oman), to be the last male referee of a women's match at a big tournament ;)

    5. Petros Mathabela from South Africa (which is, however, no member state of Europe). ;-)

    6. Do you think in 20/30 yrs time ,a pool of both men & women referee will oversee matches in the Olympic Games for both competitions?

  16. come on once all referees wore black and it was up to clubs to make sure there colours did not clash it was not up to the referee to change.
