Champions League referees are no longer allowed to wear the pale grey shorts. Uefa has decided to switch back to the old black trousers. Only on matchday 2 next week there’s an exception. From group match 3 all referees must wear the black short.
The 3rd Team has released a statement from Uefa on their website which confirms this. “In a communiqué issued by UEFA’s Refereeing Department sent to all national associations, the referees were asked to wear the old black trousers and stockings deployed in UEFA Champions League 2013/14 season from now on until the end of this campaign”, is what the website says.
In my opinion it is a good call , because the pale grey shorts were ugly. And I think most of you agree on that. These were your tweets about the grey shorts:
All of my days. That referees kit is disgusting. Who designed it and made them wear it @dutchreferee

These grey baggy shorts the referees are wearing in the Champions League this season should be given a red card.
