In compliance with the FIFA Laws of the Game (Law 4 – The Players’ Equipment) “a player must not use equipment or wear anything that is dangerous to himself or another player (including any kind of jewellery).”
In addition the Interpretation of the Laws of the Game and Guidelines for Referees - Law 4 states “All items of jewellery (necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, leather bands, rubber bands, etc.) are strictly forbidden and must be removed. Using tape to cover jewellery is not acceptable.”
Referees are also prohibited from wearing jewellery (except for a watch or similar device for timing the match).
In summary all players must remove all items of jewellery prior to entering the Field of Play. This includes bands, leather necklaces and any other loose wristbands. Sweatbands may be worn.
Any player wearing any kind of jewellery (including all rings) will be refused permission to enter the field of play or will be required to leave the field of play to correct his/her equipment. A player who enters (or re enters) the field of play without the referee's permission is cautioned and shown the yellow card.
The individual player is responsible for player equipment and should be fully aware of the requirements of the Laws of the Game. The role of the Referee is to ensure that the players' equipment meets the requirements of Law 4 (As set out in Law 5 - The Referee).
Any player requiring vision correction should wear contact lenses, or wear spectacles that: (i) are firmly secured with a sports band or adjustable strap; (ii) have purpose-designed and closely fitted curled ends on the arms; or (iii) are specially designed protective sports glasses constructed of plastic with rubberised cushioning and no metallic parts.
The referee has the final decision on the day in regards to the safety of players equipment.
Information about the wearing of a kippah on the football field.
This applies to Junior teams (U12 - U18) and senior teams only.
FIFA has made a ruling about the wearing of kippot or yarmulkes or skull caps on the football field during play that affects our club.
This has been checked with FFV and they have informed us that they now accept the ruling as it stands.
The ruling is that any player is entitled to wear a kippah on the field for religious reasons.
However the kippah MUST be the same colour as the shirt that the player is wearing. OR it can be plain black.
So in the case of MFCC players wearing kippot MUST have a sky blue and an orange kippah for playing. OR plain black.
In regards to fixing the kippah to a player's head the flat clips are the only ones acceptable.
Please be aware that referees are within their rights to ask players to leave the field if these rules are not complied with.
