When the Champions League becomes impossible to watch …

March 9, 2022

Last night, Liverpool received FC Internazionale Milano in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. Liverpool was playing in their traditional red home kit while the Italian club was wearing a nice dark blue jersey. However, this kit selection made this game unwatchable for some people in the football industry.

Indeed, colour blind fans got difficulties watching the game due to a kit clash between the two jerseys selected for this game. It is not the first time this season that kit selection has generated reactions on social media by the colour blind community.

Earlier this year, the rugby match between Wales vs Ireland generated huge interest on newspaper websites where it was highlighted that this game was a major problem in terms of watchability for rugby fans. We would like to invite clubs, leagues, and FAs to get interest in this topic as 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women are affected by this colour vision deficiency.
