Olympia 2021: Germany plays without the DFB logo - black jerseys make fans despair


When the German footballers kick off the Olympics, many fans ask themselves: Where is the DFB logo? The black jerseys also cause confusion.

When the German footballers kick off the Olympics, many fans ask themselves: Where is the DFB logo?

The black jerseys also cause confusion.

Yokohama - The German team * started the soccer tournament in Japan with a defeat at the Olympics *.

The 2: 4 bankruptcy in the opening game against Brazil one day before the official opening ceremony * brought back very different memories.

At the same place in Yokohama, the DFB-Elf lost 2-0 to the Seleção in the 2002 World Cup final. In the Olympic final in Rio 2016, Neymar & Co. suffered a bitter defeat on penalties.

On the other hand, Germany celebrated a milestone on the way to the title with the legendary 7-1 win against Brazil in the 2014 World Cup semi-finals.

After the 0: 3 after half an hour by three-packer Richarlison at the start of the Olympics, one had to fear that the German team would get under the wheels this time.

In addition to the German game, however, the jerseys caused the biggest question marks for the fans.

Why is the Kuntz team running without a DFB eagle?

A jersey breakdown caused additional frowns.

Olympia 2021: Germany plays without the DFB logo - instead a letter adorns the jersey

The German team competed against the Brazilians traditionally dressed in yellow in black jerseys. A white “D” shines on the chest, underneath the five Olympic rings and above the word “Team”. Strange: Germany normally appears at world and European championships, as most recently at EM 2021, with the DFB logo on the chest. Another detail is missing with the four stars for the world championship titles. Why is the team not wearing the DFB jerseys at the Olympics?

The answer is easy and quick to explain: the soccer team, like all other Olympians, belongs to the German Olympic team.

The so-called Team D competes for Germany and was nominated by the German Olympic Sports Confederation.

"Either a national emblem or the logo of the National Olympic Committee is permitted for the Olympic Games," explains DOSB spokeswoman Ulrike Spitz.

In addition, a small supplier logo up to ten centimeters can be affixed to the sportswear.

It was also noticeable that the jerseys are classically numbered from number one to 18.

Olympia 2021: Black jerseys confuse fans on TV

Another curiosity caught the eye of the attentive football fan on the TV screen. The German team wore a black ribbon in memory of the victims of the flood disaster at home. A nice gesture that deserves recognition. Unfortunately, there was little or nothing to be seen of the armbands on the black jerseys. "Black armbands on black jerseys lose their effect," wrote a fan on Twitter, for example. "I thought they were only playing with a black ribbon and not in a mourning jersey?" Another user is ironic. On Sunday (1.30 p.m.) the next game against Saudi Arabia * is waiting for Team D, then possibly again in the white home jersey.
