Why are RB Leipzig wearing different coloured sponsors at Tottenham?

It is not known why RB Leipzig wore different coloured shirts.

But what is known is that the correct logo for RB Leipzig’s third kit, which they are wearing in North London, is the black and white one worn by Timo Werner.

Are RB Leipzig allowed to wear different coloured sponsors on their shirts?

According to Article 28.5 of Uefa’s Equipment Regulations, RB Leipzig have done nothing wrong in allowing their players to wear different coloured sponsors at Spurs.

That rule states: “The choice of script and colour of any lettering is unrestricted, but no manufacturer identification or decorative elements may be incorporated.”

This suggests that the Red Bull-owned side exploited a loophole in the competition regulations and may have opted to wear the different coloured sponsors for marketing reasons.
