Personalised captain's armbands with the club crest and colours.

Give a touch of professionalism and distinction to your football club with these custom armbands for captains. Now, the captain of the football team (or basketball, rugby, handball, hockey...) can wear his personalised captain's armband, personalised with the team's crest, name, club colours, etc. Thus, you will not have to wear a generic armband of one colour, and you will have an armband that represents the colours and crest of the team.

The material of the armband is a special flexible polyester, and is elastic, to fit comfortably to the diameter of the captain's arm. It is held firmly in place by velcro, and also includes a rubber safety strap to prevent it from falling off if the velcro comes off, which is hidden during use. And it's machine washable, so it's nice and clean after every game.

What is the role of a team captain?

Captain's armbands are a textile accessory used in football, rugby, hockey, and other sports to identify the player who is the leader of each team on the field of play. The armband is placed on the arm of the player designated as captain, and usually features the team crest or logo, or the colours representing the club. The main purpose of these armbands is to allow referees and spectators to identify the player who is allowed to speak to them on behalf of the team during the match.

Personalised football captains armbands

In football matches, and other sports, there are so many players on the pitch that it would be very uncontrolled for everyone to be able to complain to the referee. For this reason it is established that only the captain can speak to the referee for these types of complaints or observations on the play.

The role of the captain in football is one of leadership and representation of the team on the field of play. The captain is the player who represents his or her team in meetings with the referees before the match, during game changes and in any other situation where it is necessary for someone to speak on behalf of the team. The captain is also the player who has the honour of receiving the trophy if his team wins the match or tournament. This is a great honour, as he/she will be the one who will be in the photos holding the champions trophy.

There are other sports such as basketball, rugby and hockey where a captain's armband is also used to identify the leader of the team, in addition to football.

Origin and history of captain's armbands

The first match in which a captain's armband was worn is not known with certainty, but it is believed to have been first used in the 1920s-1930s or so.

The origin of these armbands is uncertain, but it is believed that they were first used as a way to help referees identify the player who was allowed to speak to them during the match.

Other uses for personalised captain’s armbands

These customised elastic armbands can have more functions than just sports team use. For example: press and journalists. In certain events that can take place in stadiums, halls, concerts, sports fields... specialised press come to cover the event. Well, the use of personalised armbands with the text "PRESS", or even personalised with the name of each media outlet or journalist, will make it possible to quickly identify who the journalists are, and speed up their entry and exit from certain restricted areas at these events.

Also for members of security, with the same objective of rapid identification. Thus, both those attending an event and the organisers will be able to easily identify the members of security thanks to the personalised bracelets they wear. In short, bracelets are a product that can have various applications and uses.
