Adidas/Tobias Huch

The Adidas company will stop using the number 44 on the shirts of the German national football team, which were released before Euro-2024. Radio Maximum tells what the reason for such a decision is!

At the end of March, journalist Tobias Huh wrote on the X social network that you can order a T-shirt with the number 44 in the Adidas online store. However, the image of this number on the T-shirt is similar to the logo of the SS – the German paramilitary formation.

Football players of the German national team at the Euro -2024 will use numbers from 1 to 23. At the same time, in the Adidas online store, customers can personalize the t-shirt by adding their name and number.

Adidas representative Oliver Bruggen said that the company will block the possibility of adding the number 44 to the shirt as soon as possible. Adidas has already banned the use of the words Fuhrer and Hitler in the design of the German national team shirts, while buyers can choose surnames such as Goebbels or Goering.

We will block the number 44 as soon as possible. Adidas employs people from around 100 countries, and our company stands for diversity and inclusion. As a company, we actively oppose xenophobia, anti-Semitism, violence and hatred in any form, Bruggen said. worn for over 70 years. Nike will be the new clothing supplier for German football players.
