Udinese Wear 10 Different Kits Against Lazio

Udinese provided a world's first on Sunday as their players wore 10 different shirts from 10 previous seasons in their 2-1 defeat to Lazio. Tied together by black and white stripes, each player sported a different design before each shirt was auctioned off for charity.

After seeking permission from the Italian FA, Udinese went ahead with the "Dacia The Auction" initiative which saw the main sponsor of the club (Dacia) supply each outfield player with a previous home kit design to wear and then auction off. Before the auction each shirt was tied to a charity or project led by a Udinese fan, with proceeds going to a variety of places.


Over €9000 was raised after the 2-1 defeat to Lazio on Sunday night, with the highest bid of €1700 being placed for the 2002/03 shirt worn by Udinese goalscorer Kevin Lasagna. The oldest kit design in the auction was the home shirt from the 1993/94 season that raked in €800.


An official version of a trend that's usually only reserved for pub league football. Top work, Udinese. A worthy project that dug out throwback kit designs. We're well on board with that. And kudos to the Italian FA for giving it the green light. Money raised. Everyone's happy.
