06/12/18 – Soccer Officials Shirt

June 12, 2018


The Kentucky High School Athletic Association worked in conjunction with Smitty’s to manufacture a Soccer officials’ shirt. Below are front/back photos of the finished product.

Inventory is available to official KHSAA licensed vendors.  Currently, the licensed vendors are:

  • Honig’s
  • JK Davis Officials Supplies
  • Fifth Region Officials Supplies
  • House of Soccer

Contact vendor information is listed on the officials’ page of the KHSAA website using the following link:


  • The shirt will be required for all postseason play in 2018.

Regular Season:

For 2018, officials may utilize one of two permissible shirts during the regular season:

  • Option 1-
    Gold soccer officials’ shirt with black pinstripes;
    If the gold shirt with black pinstripes creates a situation where it is deemed too close in color to the color of one of the team’s jerseys, the shirt shall be black with white pinstripes;
    The shirts may not contain logos or identifying patches other than the logo of the manufacturer or an optional American flag.
  • Option 2-
    Official safety green and black shirt with KHSAA sublimated logo on left front below pocket.

Officials must match. In other words, in the regular season, you could not have two officials with Option 1 and one with Option 2 doing the same contest.

For all contests in 2019, Option 2 shall be the only approved uniform shirt.
