EFL says home teams can wear kits to avoid clashes for color blind fans | Soccer News



English Football League (EFL) teams will be able to wear away or third-party kits when playing at home from next season to help color-blind supporters.
The governing body of the three divisions below the Premier League approved changes to its rules at its annual general meeting on Friday.
“A home club will now be able to wear their ‘away’ or third kit in the event of a clash which would make it difficult for people with color blindness to differentiate between the kits worn by the two teams,” the EFL said in a statement. .
“The amendment also allows clubs to ‘mix and match’ elements of their registered kits to avoid kit conflicts.”
The EFL added that it would work with clubs to identify situations where such clashes could occur.
“Fantastic news,” Color Blind Awareness wrote on Twitter. “The color blindness kit rule change proposed by the EFL was approved at their AGM today!”

The EFL has also approved the use of five substitutes per game in the 2022-23 season, following the example of the Premier League, which voted in favor of the same in March.
