Why Are Real Madrid wearing last season’s jersey vs Valencia? 

If you are also confused watching the La Liga match between Real Madrid and Valencia and wondering why are Real Madrid wearing a purple kit? well it’s because of a kit clash. 

Real Madrid Dig Out Last Season’s Kit for Valencia Clash Due to Kit Clash

Real Madrid will be sporting a rather unusual look for their match against Valencia tonight, taking the field in their purple away kit from last season. This unexpected choice stems from a kit clash with their opponents.

Both Real Madrid’s second and third kits for this season are black, which unfortunately matches the color of Valencia’s shorts and socks. La Liga regulations prohibit teams from wearing kits that could cause difficulty in distinguishing players on the field.

Faced with this limitation, Real Madrid exhausted all possible combinations of their current shirt, shorts, and socks, but none met the regulations to avoid a clash. As a result, they were granted permission to wear their purple away kit from the 2022-23 season, ensuring clear differentiation between the two teams on the pitch.

This unique situation highlights the importance of careful kit design to avoid potential clashes and ensure a smooth-running match.
