Why Man City Won't Have UCL Winner's Badge On Their Kit Next Season


Despite winning the championship on Saturday night, Manchester City won't wear the Champions League winners' badge on their uniform the following year.

With a spirited 1-0 victory over Inter Milan in Istanbul, Pep Guardiola's esteemed team accomplished a historic treble.

Why won't Man City's uniform feature a Champions League badge?

After winning the Champions League in recent seasons, other teams, like Real Madrid and Liverpool, wore the insignia on their uniforms.

According to The Mirror, teams that have only won the Champions League once are not given the UEFA Badge of Honour.

Pep Guardiola, meanwhile, is the first manager to complete a treble with two separate clubs.

However, Manchester City will not have the Champions League badge on their kits for the upcoming campaign.

The reason for this is UEFA’s Badge of Honour is not awarded to teams that have only won the Champions League once. In fact, there are only a select few clubs in European football who can currently wear it.

Introduced at the beginning of the 2000/01 season, clubs must win a European title either five times or three times in succession to qualify for the badge.
