Slik blir det trolig aldri igjen

Se nøye på bildet fra VM-semifinalen mellom Tyskland og Spania i 2010. I neste års VM vil buksene se helt annerledes ut.

Tyskland i helhvitt. Tyskland i helhvitt.
Spania i helrødt. Spania i helrødt.
Argentina i hvite bukser. Argentina i hvite bukser.
Japan har ofte hatt hvite bukser, men nå er det blå som gjelder. Japan har ofte hatt hvite bukser, men nå er det blå som gjelder.

Om det er på grunn av regelendringer fra Fifa når det gjelder draktfarger, eller om det er Adidas som har gått for mindre variasjon i farger på landslagsdraktene, er jeg ikke sikker på. Jeg har undersøkt i Fifas reglement for VM-sluttspillet, og der er det ikke noen endringer i forhold til sluttspillet i 2010. (Se reglementene fra 2010 og 2014 nederst i saken).

I 2010 kunne altså Tyskland ha svarte bukser, og Spania ha blå, og ingen mente det var fare for noen fargekollisjon da lagene møttes i semifinalen. Slik blir det altså ikke i det kommende VM – og det synes jeg er synd.

Det er ganske mye tradisjoner som kastes over bord når Tyskland ikke lenger spiller i svarte bukser. Det samme gjelder at blåfargen forsvinner fra Spania-drakten.

Folk har reagert i Tyskland etter at det ble klart at landslaget nå skulle spille i helhvitt. Spillerne er selvfølgelig positive når en ny drakt skal lanseres, men også de må nok synes at dette er litt rart.

Jeg har på følelsen at dette først og fremst er et grep Adidas har gjort for å få renere og mer helhetlige landslagsdrakter, og at kravet dermed ikke kommer fra Fifa. Jeg nekter for eksempel å tro at det brasilianske fotballforbundet vil gå med på at Brasil skal spille i gule overdeler og gule bukser i VM på hjemmebane. Jeg ser også at Sverige og Danmarks Adidas-drakter har bukser i de ”rette” fargene når draktene deres nå er lansert, så det er altså håp også når det gjelder Adidas...

Fifas draktregler for VM 2010:

Each team shall inform FIFA of two different and contrasting colours (one predominately dark and one predominately light kit) for its official and reserve team kit (shirt, shorts and socks). In addition, each team shall select three (3) contrasting colours for the goalkeepers. This information shall be sent to FIFA on the team colour form. Only these colours may be worn at the matches.

No later than 60 days after the fi nal draw, the participating member associations shall send FIFA a sample of the full offi cial and reserve team kits (shirt, shorts, socks, all three goalkeeper’s kits, gloves, caps, wristbands and headbands, etc.) intended for use during the final competition for approval.

FIFA shall organise a kit-day session, which all participating member associations are obliged to attend. All equipment (kits, gloves, bags, medical equipment etc.) that could be on display within the stadium, the training grounds, the hotels or during transfers to, from or within South Africa must be approved by FIFA. FIFA will issue a written decision soon after the kit day regarding the approval of all submitted articles. Should any article of the team kit or any part thereof not be in accordance with the FIFA Equipment Regulations, the participating member association will be obliged to change it accordingly and re-submit the corrected items within 30 days of the fi rst written decision.

FIFA will inform the teams of the colours that they shall wear for each match. As far as possible, each team shall wear its offi cial colours as declared on the offi cial team colour form. If the two teams’ colours and the referees’ colour might cause confusion, in principle, team A in the official match schedule will be entitled to wear its official team kit and team B will use its reserve team kit or, if necessary, both teams may have to wear a combination of their offi cial and reserve team kits. FIFA will endeavour to ensure that each team wears its official team kit at least once during the tournament.
