Man City Women Won’t Wear White Shorts Any More, Switch To Burgundy Due To Period Concerns


The football club Manchester City on Tuesday announced to change the colour of their women’s team shorts after concerns were raised by the players about wearing white while on their periods. The women team will now get to wear burgundy shorts when wearing their sky blue home kit, reported news agency AFP.

After City beat Blackburn 6-0 in the Continental Cup on Wednesday, wearing the burgundy shorts, the club decided to stick to the colour of shorts for their women’s teams for the remainder of the season, reported the Manchester Evening News.

The move was also confirmed by Puma, the kit manufacturer for the football team.

“As a result of player feedback and the underlying topic of women wanting to move away from wearing white shorts while on their periods, we have decided to implement changes to the products we offer to our female players,” said Puma, in a statement.

“Starting from the 2023/24 season, we will not be providing white shorts to our female athletes,” Puma added.

“Puma and Manchester City take pride in working closely with our players to support them and create the best possible environment for them to feel comfortable and perform at their highest level.

Some football clubs have already begun to make changes to the kit. Recently, West Brom and Stoke announced to switch to navy and red shorts respectively for their women’s sides after discussing it with their players, reported the AFP.

During the European Championship in July, that saw England Women team win the trophy, the issue of white shorts for female athletes had been raised by many players.

The English Football Association had said players would continue to wear white shorts but that changing colours “will be taken into consideration for future designs,” reported AFP.
