Shin Guard

To Glossary

Pads that are placed under the socks to protect the shin bone. There are many different sizes and styles. Some old-school shin guards use velcro and have ankle protectors. However, modern shin guards are smaller, lighter, and are held in place either with a shin guard sock, tape or held in place by the uniform’s socks.

Shin guards are required to be worn by all players by FIFA laws and regulations.
