Champions League "Star"


Bruno

Recommended Posts

Sorry if I am being ignorant, but why haven't we been wearing the "star" above the crest on our shirts for winning the champions league.  

 

Isn't that how it works?   

 

Or am I missing something?

I think the insignia of winning it is that in CL games you get the emblem of the trophy instead of the ball on the arm patch.

 

The stars aer entirely optional, City have 3 stars for their League wins lol.

Presumably our shirt design was submitted to the Premier League well before Munich, and I guess the only possible alterations to it could've been official patches like the club world cup one had we of won it.

 

Wouldn't be surprised to see a star incorporated into next years shirt.

City's stars are purely for decoration. it says that here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchester_City_F.C.

 

As they had the 3 stars last season and they only had 2 league trophy's.

I read somewhere that if Chelsea has wanted to incorporate a star onto the shirt they would need to re-register the clubs official badge/logo which I assume is rather costly especially if the intention had been to only wear it for this season or only in the Champions League itself. 

 

 

 

Basically a simple gesture is made difficult by footballing politics.

This. Clubs with stars have it in their actual crest. The kit the club sold was just like a cash in on the concept

 

You'll also notice most clubs don't have stars for their wins. AFAIK only the italian league and the WC kits (maybe euros too) have stars on them for number of wins.

^ Not sure they are for CL wins. But even then they'd be the exception because madrid, barcelona, united etc. dont have stars. The patch on their sleeve looks more like what you get these days.

 

Either way its a pretty weird system.

There isn't a 'system' at all with regard to stars above crests for European Cups, it's entirely up to a club if they want to put one there.

 

Most clubs don't do it, some do. I can think of Nottingham Forest and Celtic as being clubs that have a star on their shirt for a European Cup win.

 

Some leagues like Italy and Germany have a system of stars for league wins, in Germany twenty league wins = 4 stars, hence Bayern's shirt. Five wins = 2 stars, Dortmund and Monchengladbach both incorporate them into their shirts, whilst Bremen, Stuttgart and HSV all sport 1 star for three league titles.

 

In Italy I believe it's one star for ten league titles, hence Milan and Inter both having 1 and Juve having 2. (and a third slightly less legitimate one!)

 

 Clubs with stars have it in their actual crest.

 

Not true, they are a part of the shirt design and not the crest itself in the vast majority of cases. The only exceptions that spring to mind are Inter, Steaua and Red Star.

I seem to recall that the PL wouldn't allow us to have the five stars on our kit so the club just used it in when playing in the CL (many moons ago). The club were probably quite happy as it just meant another replica shirt opportunity.
