The reason Tottenham plays Liverpool in white in the Champions League final


Eagle-eyed Tottenham fans may have noticed a small detail prior to the Champions League final against Liverpool.

It is expected that the stars of Spurs will appear in a completely white set, as noted, that players have offered for promotions in the combination of white shirts and shorts.

However, the combination is not a new one, because the men of Mauricio Pochettino are playing in white shorts this season for all their European matches.

The all-white kit for European competitions has become a tradition for the club. In fact, when possible, the team had the full white appearance for every European night since 1961.

The kit is a return to the great Tottenham teams from the sixties, when the club won the European Cup winner's cup in 1963 – in the final 5-1 against Atletico Madrid. The club also won two European awards when it won the UEFA Cup in 1971/72 and 1983/84.

Some fans were initially unhappy with the white shorts combo with the faded blue effect on today's home shirts, but it seems that others see tradition as a lucky charm after the dramatic semi-final comeback against Ajax to make it to the final (despite that the team carries the green away set for the second leg of that tie).

Tottenham hopes that the traditional European all-white kit will prove to be their lucky charm against Liverpool, as the team strives to write history and conquer Europe just like their predecessors.
