Why are the Udinese players wearing 11 different shirts in today’s Serie A match?

There’s something a little bit interesting about Udinese’s shirts as they lined-up against Lazio today.

The Bianconeri Friuliani are currently in the midst of a crisis – going into today’s game having lost their last seven consecutive matches – while manager Massimo Oddo’s job is seemingly hanging by a thread, but that’s little concern to the team ahead of this never-seen-before occasion.

Because if you look closely, each outfield player is wearing a slightly different jersey – each from a different past season – for a very special reason.

It seems each shirt – ranging from the 1993-94 season to present day – will be auctioned off after the match to fund 11 different good causes, supported by 11 different patrons.

The dreams range from Virginia Yessica Sevilla’s goal of building a family home for the elderly and disabled children, to Michela Bonan’s goal of publishing a book on the ancient factories that had sprung up in Udine.

According to the club’s website, this is the first time something like this has taken place in the sport and is truly a unique and brilliant idea.

And personally, we’ve got our eye on their 1997-98 season jersey.

Today, at 6 pm, Udinese will play with 11 different jerseys ⚪⚫ https://t.co/z58VfyM4gv pic.twitter.com/2Y439WXBuy
