That's because some federations have requirements for their national jerseys and some don't. Sponsors will pretty much always get their way if it isn't forced on them.WildspokeJoe said:Maybe I'm old school but in recent years teams have absolutely butchered national jerseys for the sake of team branding. I like the jersey that is the traditional flag from the country. My favorite is the Belgium jersey/flag. But the French, Italian & Dutch jersey/flags are equally cool. Simple and iconic.
