  2. centred down the outer seam (right and left legs).

Non-playing attire bottoms bands may also include decorative elements, subject to Article 12.


Manufacturer identifications must not exceed 20cm², except for in the non-playing attire bottoms band where the size of the manufacturer design marks may not exceed the width of the band (maximum 8cm).


One type of manufacturer identification not exceeding 20cm² may also be incorporated using jacquard weave, with no restrictions as to the number or positioning of the identification chosen.


Quality seals and/or technology labels may be used in accordance with Chapter V, which applies by analogy.


Sponsor advertising is only allowed in accordance with Chapter VI .


Initials of players and staff members or squad numbers are permitted for identification purposes. Such identifications must not exceed 7.5cm in height.


The branded apparel partner of a competition may display the corresponding competition logo on non-playing attire bottoms subject to the prior written approval of the UEFA administration, and provided the training bottoms contain no sponsor advertising. Such competition logos may not exceed 50cm2 and may not appear on attire used in any other competition (UEFA or otherwise).
