Can I use my existing playing uniform?

Yes. The 2018 playing strip from Mitre has been carefully chosen to be close in colour and design to the Deploy strip from 2017 and the Adidas strip from 2016 so you can still wear your old uniform and it won’t look out of place.

 

 

Which Jersey Number do I get?

U12 – U18 and Seniors
Players in U12 - U18 and Seniors teams must have unique jersey numbers.
  1. Notify your Team Manager what number you prefer and whether you already own a jersey(s) with this number.
  2. Team Manager will check if anyone else has the same number and load your number into Teamstuff.
  3. When you go to Sportsmart you must order the Jersey Number which has been assigned to you in Teamstuff.
NOTE: Numbers 1 and 21 are reserved for goalkeeper jerseys.
U8 – U11
Duplicate Jersey Numbers are allowed in U8-U11 teams so get whatever number you prefer.

No number is also allowable.
U7
U7 players borrow their jerseys from the club for the season.  These jerseys already have numbers on them.   Choose whichever number you like from whatever numbers are available.

White clash jerseys

Q. Which jersey should I bring to the match?
A. Glen Eira U12-Seniors players must bring both maroon and white jerseys to every match.

Q. Which team has to wear the clash jersey?
A. In the event of a clash of jersey colour with the opposition team, it is the away team who are required to wear an alternate coloured jersey.
Alternate coloured shorts and socks aren’t required in the leagues which Glen Eira plays in.

Q. How can we predict if there is likely to be a clash?
A. If you have both jerseys on hand as required, then you don’t need to predict.
However to satisfy your curiosity click here for the FFV Strip Report.

Q. Can we wear the white jersey at away matches even if there isn’t a clash?
A. Yes. Teams may treat the white jersey as the Glen Eira ‘away’ strip.

Q. Can we wear the white jersey at home matches?
A. Not unless you are the AWAY team playing against another Glen Eira team who is the home team.
Glen Eira teams should always wear their Maroon tops at home. Unless there’s a clash and the opposition team doesn’t have their own clash jerseys, then we would probably do the right thing and switch in order to allow the match to proceed.

Goalkeepers

The Club Hub will issue each team with a goalkeeper jersey and goalkeeper gloves for use by goalkeepers during the season, regardless of whomever that goalkeeper may be.  At the end of the season these items must be washed (cold) and dried and then returned to the club, ready to be re-issued for the following season.

Since goalkeepers may be expected to play in the field from time to time, all players in the team including the goalkeeper are required to have their own field player jersey(s) with numbers other than the goalkeeper numbers of 1 and 21 on the back.

A goalkeeper’s number in Teamstuff should be his number as an outfield player.  In other words the number on his/her maroon (and white) jerseys. This will ensure that no other field player ends up with the same field number as the goalkeeper.

 

 

Boots, Shinguards, Mouthguards

  • Players need to purchase their own football boots and shinguards from their local sports retailer or online. These are required by the laws of the game.
    .
  • The boots should have moulded soles not screw-in studs.   Whilst screw-in studs technically are allowed under FIFA rules, the club disallows them because they are scary to other parents and not justified because we don’t play on really muddy grounds.
    .
  • Shinguards must be worn under the socks.
    .
  • Mouthguards are not required, but may be a good idea.

 

 

Undergarments

FIFA Laws of the Game (Law 4 – Players Equipment) applies to U12 upwards and states:

  • Undershirts must be the same colour as the main colour of the shirt sleeve
  • undershorts/tights must be the same colour as the main colour of the shorts or the lowest part of the shorts
  • players of the same team must wear the same colour.
