In conjunction with the FA and UEFA we have created some guidance documents for football.
The FA/UEFA Colour Blindness in Football guidance document, UEFA’s Advice Sheet for Coach Educators and Advice When Selecting Kit Colours can be downloaded and printed below. Some information is available in a choice of 8 languages.
In addition to the FA/UEFA Guidance below we have also created some factsheets for Clubs in conjunction with the FA/The Premier League/The English Football League (in English only) which can be downloaded by clicking on these links

We are aware of the sensitivity of providing information in Russian at this time. However, many Ukrainians speak Russian, so having information available in Russian may be helpful for those in other countries who are trying to support and integrate Ukrainian players who a have temporarily settled in Europe. Also, Russian citizens should not have to suffer due to the actions of their leaders and we want to support colour blind people everywhere as far as we can.
