England and New Zealand teams remove the white shorts from their kit

Due to concerns over menstruation, both teams will have to stop wearing white shorts and wear dark clothing at the 2023 World Cup.

Last Monday, April 3, the England and New Zealand teams announced a great news. These would set aside the white band as blue and light blue respectively. It all stemmed from the discomfort felt by the players due to their periods, not allowing them to function properly on the field of play.

For their part, England won the last Euro Cup wearing all white. But after the feat, they expressed their displeasure before the country’s federation, which promised to work with sponsor Nike to find a solution.

During the match in July 2022, England forward Beth Mead commented that the team had asked the sports brand to change the color of the shorts, a request which the FA eventually agreed to.

Likewise, New Zealanders will also experience a major change in their clothing. His teammates wear a white shirt with turquoise shorts as the main uniform. As announced by the New Zealand Football Association, the second tier kits will be black.

Hannah Wilkinson, a New Zealand player for MSV Duisburg in the German second division and national team, noted that the change helped a lot. “Ultimately it helps us focus more on our performance and shows appreciation and appreciation for women’s health. It’s great for women who suffer from any kind of period anxiety.”Public.

This week Nike is releasing both the home and away kits of the leading teams. When it was England’s turn they explained “Lions are more for their country than football. Lead on and off the field to make changes on the fly“.
