German Supporters are not Allowed to Purchase Number 44 kits Because of Nazi Imagery

Adidas has prohibited football fans from purchasing German football uniforms featuring the number 44, following criticism from the media on their similarity to the emblem utilized by Nazi SS soldiers during World War II.

“We’re going to prohibit jersey personalization,” an Adidas representative declared. SS forces carried out the majority of the Nazis’ crimes against humanity.

The decision to utilize pink as the away color for the recently unveiled kit has also sparked debate.

Historian Michael König was the first to highlight the symbolic issue, stating that the kits’ design was “very questionable”.

“As a company, we are dedicated to combating all forms of violence, hatred, anti-Semitism, and xenophobia,” he stated. Adidas informed the BBC separately that the numbers on the shirts were created in collaboration with the German Football Association (DFB) and its partners.

DFB stated in a tweet on Twitter/X that “none of the parties involved saw any proximity to Nazi symbolism” and that the shirt designs had been submitted to UEFA for assessment during the design process.

They also mentioned that a different design would be created for the number 4.
