Nowadays it is the most popular mass sports in the world. Each team has three types of the uniform: basic, guest, and reserve. Colors of the football uniform, as well as peculiarities of details, such as type of the t-shirt's collar, sleeves, are defined by football club and correspond to specific traditions.
