Due to concerns among the team about players wearing white shorts while on their periods, West Bromwich Albion Women have decided to switch to a different color.
Having consulted with the team extensively, the FA National League Northern Premier Division club announced on Thursday that they will be switching from white to navy shorts.
In light of the issue brought to light by the Lionesses earlier this summer, Albion has announced that they will debut their new navy shorts in their upcoming match against Brighouse Town and that they will work to ensure that their future home uniforms do not have white shorts.
After the 2022–23 season, the club announced that the Albion Women would replace their white shorts with blue ones. The team’s captain, Hannah George, expressed her approval of the decision, saying, “It’s excellent that the club is backing our transition to navy shorts.
Putting on a good show for the club and appearing sharp while wearing the uniform is a priority for us. We’ll be able to improve our work without worrying about any outside factors thanks to this adjustment.
Jenny Sugarman, head coach of West Brom, said, “As a staff, it is our responsibility to discover every percentage point we can to help our players perform at their best.”
I think it’s great that the club has embraced the idea of giving our female athletes navy shorts. It’s a reflection of the club’s progressive and welcoming culture, and it shows that the women’s team is fully integrated into all aspects of the organization.
