You are currently viewing Denmark – Tunisia: Danes pull through protest action – why Fifa is powerless

Today, Tuesday (November 22), secret favorite Denmark started the World Cup against Tunisia. All eyes of the fans are on the Danish team, which was one of the nations that, like the German team, actually wanted to wear the OneLove captain’s armband. However, FIFA put a stop to this.

Nevertheless, Denmark against Tunisia pulls through one of their planned protests. We’re talking about her jersey. This has a special feature.

Denmark-Tunisia: One of the favorites with a protest

In the past few days, FIFA has banned both the OneLove captain’s armband and the word ‘Love’ on the Belgium national team’s kit. However, Denmark is still going through with its planned jersey protest. Instead of playing in normal kit like many other nations, the Danes play with an all-red jersey. The logo of the association and the outfitter Hummel are also tone-in-tone with the rest of the jersey.

The reason: “We don’t want to be visible at a tournament that has cost the lives of thousands of people,” said Morten Lund from Hummel. In addition, the outfitter will donate part of the proceeds to the human rights organization Amnesty International. The Danish association also does not want to be visible at the tournament.

Denmark-Tunisia: That’s why FIFA is powerless

But why is Denmark allowed to carry out its planned protest, but not the other nations? The answer to the question is given by FIFA itself in its regulations. The rules stipulate that the jerseys of the teams must be kept in a dominant color and the team symbol and the manufacturer’s mark must not exceed a certain size.

The team emblem must not be larger than 100 square centimeters and the team emblem no larger than 20 square centimeters. However, these do not have to be visible. The jersey also does not contain any visible and clearly identifiable political statement such as text or an emblem. For this reason, the Danish association has not violated the statutes of the world association.
