Liverpool Must Wait For Chance To Wear World Champions' Gold Badge

Liverpool Must Wait For Chance To Wear World Champions' Gold Badge

At long last Liverpool have finally earned the right to place the prestigious World Champions badge on their jersey, but they must also wait for the opportunity to wear it as it is not permitted in the Premier League.

However, the club will be afforded the opportunity to don it in other competitions once they are officially presented with it at a ceremony yet to be announced. The Merseysiders will be permitted to wear it in the Champions League this season and up until a new world club champion is crowned next season.

They will also be permitted to wear it in the FA Cup, although they club will need to formally apply to register the new jersey first.

After overcoming Flamengo last night to win their first world title, a Fifa spokesperson told the club website:

As per the usage guidelines, the winning team can wear the FIFA World Champions Badge from the day it becomes champions up to and including the final of the next edition of the tournament.

Real Madrid have held the right to wear the badge for 1,098 days, having won the Club World Cup for three years running, which means that their clash with Athletic Bilbao later on this evening will be the first time they don their jerseys without the prestigious badge since 2016.
