PLAYING DRESSES
    Each team shall have available two different sets of clothing in different colours. The colour of the playing dresses will be checked by the referees prior to each game. If the referees consider that the clothing of two teams is likely to cause confusion, the team named second in the playing schedule shall change its clothing to ensure a good contrast, therefore both sets of shirts must include the exact same numbers!
