52.01

All items incorporated into equipment are measured in the smallest possible geometric form (square, rectangle, triangle, circle etc.) and their dimensions calculated using the usual mathematical formula.

52.02

To calculate the surface area, the widest part of the item is measured from edge to edge. Exceptionally, items may be divided into several individual geometric forms for the purpose of calculating the surface area.

52.03

Manufacturers may submit specific proposals as to how to measure specific items submitted to the UEFA administration.

52.04

Manufacturer design marks and product line identifications are measured as individual geometric forms when the distance between the various elements does not exceed 0.5cm.

52.05

Player numbers and names are measured without including any shadow outlines, 3D effects or contrasting key lines.

52.06

One of the following surface areas, whichever is the larger, is used for measuring sponsor advertising:

  1. The surface of a single-coloured patch used for sponsor advertising if the patch is not the same colour as the underlying shirt colour.

  2. The surface of the sponsor advertising used if the advertising is printed directly on the shirt, or on a patch of the same colour as the underlying shirt colour (if two main shirt colours are used, patches used for sponsor advertising may be either of the two shirt colours and only the sponsor advertising itself will be measured for approval). This is measured as several individual geometric forms when made up of more than one separable line of text or consisting of a logo and text separately, however the distance between the various elements must not exceed 5cm.

52.07

On shirts with chest rings (as a minimum from seam to seam across the front of the shirt), the surface of the sponsor advertising is measured and not the chest ring.

52.08

The following diagrams and related descriptions provide examples of the measurement procedure:

  1. Manufacturer design mark

    1. The Nike logo size is calculated using the formula: "a" x "b"

    2. The Puma logo size is calculated using the formula: ("c" + "d")/2 x "h"

  2. Manufacturer composite mark

    1. The total size is calculated by adding the size of the two separate areas measured as follows:

    • The word mark size which is calculated using the formula: "a" x "b"

    • The design mark size which is calculated using the formula: "b" x "d"

    1. The distance between the design mark and the word mark in a composite mark may not exceed 0.5cm (otherwise they will be considered as two separate identifications)

  3. Sponsor advertising on a neutral coloured patch

    1. The sponsor advertising size is calculated using the formula of the neutral patch: "a" x "b"

  4. Sponsor advertising applied on the shirt colours or on a patch of one of the shirt colours

    1. The size of a single item of sponsor advertising is calculated using the formula: "a" x "b"

    2. The size of sponsor advertising containing more than one item is measured by adding together the size of the two separate areas, measured as follows:

    • Two words calculated as ("a" x "b") + ("c" x "d")

    • Word and logo calculated as ("a" x "b") + (area of the circle "c")

    • The distance ("d") between the word and the logo may not exceed 5cm
