That announcement confused quite a few people last night. It wasn't about new jerseys but about the Slovan website at
. As you pehaps know, it's been criticized or being old-fashioned and lacking foreign-language content. So on Monday, Slovan's website should get a new look along with more articles in English and Russian.
As to our team colour, which is sky-blue, I agree with you. The KHL management can seemingly be needlessly despotic at times. They forbade the use of diacritics on jerseys, so now there is
, and twice
on Lev's team, although one of them is really
and the other one is
. (Can you spot the difference? The two names are also pronounced slightly differently.)
Similarly, the KHL forbade Slovan to use their traditional jersey colour (sky-blue, see my forum avatar to the left), saying sky-blue was too light-coloured for Slovan's home games, and too dark-coloured for Slovan's road games.
I hope KHL will reconsider this for later seasons. At least the scarves that the spectators got for free last night at Slovan's arena were of the proper team colour, sky-blue.
Slovan, both in hockey and football, has always been known under the nickname of the "Sky-Blues" ("Belasí") in Slovakia and Czechoslovakia, so it's sad to see the team's symbol on the list of KHL's forbidden jersey colours.
There is something called rules .... if you as club, meaning Slovan, dont like these rules, dont join league.
Команда-«хозяин» обязана выступать в «домашней» (темной) форме, а команда«гость» — в «гостевой»(светлой) форме, контрастной по цвету.
