Viewers Left Confused By Blatant Colour Clash Allowed To Occur In Ulster Final

Viewers Left Confused By Blatant Colour Clash Allowed To Occur In Ulster Final

The Ulster final is a huge occasion every year, but the teams involved in this year's decider ensured that it would be an even livelier affair.

Armagh were hoping to win the competition for the first time since 2008, ensuring a huge amount of interest in that county. While Derry won the trophy last year, their following in recent times also ensured that they would have a huge level of support for the game.

Such was the level of interest in the fixture that there were even suggestions it could be moved to Croke Park. It was instead decided to stick with Clones as the venue, with tickets quickly snapped up.

For those who were watching the game on television, it was difficult to distinguish between the two teams at times.

Viewers baffled by colour clash in Ulster final

Armagh and Derry are not two counties that would traditionally have to worry about a colour clash. After all, Armagh's orange strip is quite different to the traditional white of their opponents.

However, that was not the case for this game.

Derry opted to wear their alternate red jersey for the game, just as they did in the semi-final against Fermanagh.


With Armagh's jersey this year also being less vibrant than other editions, it meant that it was difficult to tell which team was which for those watching the game on television.

Quite a few people took to social media to social media to share their confusion with the kit choices.


It is certainly something that could have been easily avoided had Derry wore their traditional home jersey, or even if Armagh also opted to change to an alternate option.

Incidents such as this just seem like a complete lack of disregard for supporters. It certainly doesn't happen in other sports with the same regularity that it does in the GAA.

It just reeks of a lack of planning or consideration for those watching the games.
