“It is not the question to the football players. All details of the uniform are approved by the UEFA. President of the UEFA stays in Rome, where he holds talks with the union representatives. It is all that we can say at the moment. Do not ask questions about it anymore. Yes, we are going to play in this kit. Our uniform is approved,” Hlyvynsky said.
As it was reported, before the start of Euro 2020, the technical sponsor of the national team of Ukraine, Joma, presented a new team uniform. The map of Ukraine and slogans "Glory to Ukraine!" and "Glory to the Heroes!" were used in the design. The new uniform caused a very violent reaction in Russia because Ukraine was depicted together with Crimea on the map. The Russians sent a request to UEFA in protest, but the organization said that everything was fine with the design.
UAF Head Andriy Pavelko went to Rome to hold talks with the UEFA. Besides, the UAF made a decision to make "Glory to Ukraine! – Glory to the Heroes!" slogan the football symbol of the team.
