A - Conduct of Games


  1. Player Uniforms

    1. All players from each team shall be dressed uniformly in jerseys, pants, socks and helmet (except of the goalkeeper who is permitted to wear a helmet of a different color than the rest of the team).

    2. The basic color shall cover approximately 80% of each part of the equipment excluding names and numbers

    3. Jerseys and socks shall be of the same color.

    4. Jerseys must be worn outside of the pants.

    5. Each player should wear and individual number 25 – 30 cm high on the back of the jersey and 10 cm on both sleeves. Numbers are limited to the numbers 1 – 99. The numbers have to be in contrast to the jersey color (dark number on bright jersey and bright number on dark jersey)

    6. Each player shall wear his name on the upper portion of the back of his sweater, printed 7 - 10 cm high.

    7. The clubs have to secure that the player number is also visible on the front side upper portion of any player jersey in a height of at least seven centimeters. 

    8. Warm-up jerseys must have player numbers on the back with a height of at least 20 cm, and each player must wear the same number assigned to him on the official game sheet. The same applies to the sleeves.

  2. Player numbers are not transferrable. A number may only be worn in play by one player during a given season. If a player leaves the club, during the season, his number may not be re-used for another player of that club during that season.

  3. Clubs must communicate to the EBEL in written form, until August 15th, 2016 which colors their home jersey will have. The visiting club has to base its choice of jerseys on the home club's color (see Appendix 1 to part A). Violations of this rule will be penalized in accordance with the EBEL Penalty Catalog (Part I). Clubs are not permitted to change the base colors of their jerseys (bright, dark) during ongoing competitions and cannot be negotiated bilateral between both teams of a game. The overview of the jersey colors (home color / second color) which will be established by the league secretary after the layout-deadline is integrative part of the procedure regulations.

  4. Before the start of each season, each EBEL club must ensure to have a bright and a dark jersey. The dark jersey has to differ fundamentally in terms of color and brightness (bright/dark). In cases where the same color is used in both jerseys, the main color used in one jersey must not exceed 10% of the color used in the other jersey. If a team plays with the wrong jersey color this perpetration will be punished according to the EBEL penalty catalogue.

  5. The Referees must ensure that the jerseys worn by each team can be distinguished in television broadcasts. In cases of doubt, the home club has to change jerseys.

  6. Each EBEL-Club has to ensure that all jerseys (white, dark) bear the League logogram (in combination with the club logo) with a size of 55 x 70 (B x H) mm.

  7. The league clubs are engaged to send the layout of both jersey-versions to the league secretariat before the production. The league office controls the correct design of the numbers as stated in the regulations, the correct placements of the sponsor-logos as well as the coloring in “bright” and “dark”.

    It is necessary that colors are used for jerseys with bright basic color as well as for jerseys with dark basic color which can be clearly allocated to the respective color definition (bright / dark).

    Only after the final approval of the league secretariat jerseys may be used at games of the EBEL. If the produced jerseys have a different color to the color of the layout and in the case of problems by determination of the colors by the TV-Host broadcaster and the referees, the jerseys have to be changed and produced new.
