Besides traditional yellow and blue sets, the Ukrainian football players had the third option of a form — white with gold inscriptions. Over surnames of football players the slogan "Glory to Ukraine is placed! "
the Innovation already caused questions in RFS. As the member of executive committee of department Igor Lebedev declared in interview of radio station "Govorit Moskva", similar inscriptions on a form are not provided by rules.
"There is quite certain set of things which can be put. This name of the country, surname of the player, his number and the country coat of arms, but any slogans on a football form is not provided" — he told. The representative of RFS noted that the relevant committees of FIFA or UEFA have to consider this violation.
