• Note that FIFA (the international governing body for football/soccer) recently modified its rules to mandate that undergarments match the game shirt and short colors.
• ONLY Goalkeepers may wear long pants; field players may only wear under-shorts. 
• Compression or fitted shirts (long or short-sleeved) may be worn under jerseys or shorts. No sweatshirts are to be worn under game jerseys or practice shirts.
