Why Liverpool aren't allowed to wear new red kit in Champions League final

Liverpool will be sporting a familiar look when they take on Tottenham Hotspur in next month's Champions League final.
Jurgen Klopp's side will be wearing the red home kit they've sported throughout the 2018/19 campaign, despite some suggestions that they'd be able to switch to their new 2019/20 home shirt.
The new strip - featuring white pinstripes to give it a 1980s look - was unveiled last month, and has proven to be a big hit with the fans.
On previous occasions when new home kits have been launched, teams - including Liverpool - have opted to wear them in their final home game of the Premier League campaign, but the Reds stuck with the 'old' shirt for the 2-0 win over Wolves on Sunday.
That led to some speculation that they could wear the new home kit in Madrid, but that won't be the case.
UEFA rules state that the kit each team starts a UEFA competition in has to be the one they complete that same competition wearing, with the only exception being if there is a change of main sponsor.
There are similarly strict rules over shirt numbers, with a particular number only being allowed to be registered to one player per season, regardless of any transfers and the change of shirt numbers they produce.
This rule led to Henrikh Mkhitaryan wearing No.77 for Arsenal in the Europa League last season despite him wearing No.7 in the Premier League, after the departed Alexis Sanchez had sported the No.7 earlier in the European campaign.
