Evening gentleman,
There’s been an increase in this over the season with directions given to referees now to enforce. Just a reminder re the wearing of jewellery and players believing it can be taped up.

From the referee’s direction
The Laws of The Game prohibit this.
- If a player has tape that can clearly be seen covering jewellery, eg stud earrings or a ring, these must be removed before you can play.
- fitness bands such as a fitbit can't be worn on the wrist, even if covered by a sweatband.
- GPSs worn under clothing are fine. Bobby pins are also ok.
- a medical identification bracelet or necklace is allowed if taped to the body.

Just to clarify, you cannot simply tape up jewellery, it must be removed.

What about nipple rings?

Technically speaking not allowed but I guess could classify as a ‘body pin’. Wear at one’s risk I would say as you wouldn’t want to go to ground with a fall and body slide - tape it at worst.

Thanks for the heads up.

Anyone who wears jewelry on the field deserves to get kicked!
