Do Athletes Perform Better Based On Their Uniform

When your non-athletically inclined friends and family come over for the big game, they’ll either cheer for your team or just choose the side with the prettiest uniforms. As it turns out, that’s actually not a bad strategy. Recent scientific research suggests colors like red, orange and blue are closely linked to success and multiple tournament championships. Psychology tells us that colors can significantly affect our moods and behavior, and given the mental component of excellent athletic performance, it makes sense the color of a uniform might affect an athlete’s performance on the field.

Of course, your favorite championship team is still extremely talented, but maybe the kicker would’ve missed the game winning field goal if he was wearing tan instead of red. Conversely, maybe all your favorite player needs to make MVP this year is a fresh jersey and the shoes to match. Check out the infographic below to see how your team’s jerseys might affect their shot at the championship this year.
