The luckiest colour to wear at the Euros in 2024

The ultimate winning combination is red top, blue trousers, and white socks…

New data reveals the luckiest colours to wear at a Euros final, with blue coming out on top. The research by NoDepositDaily, examined UEFA’s previous records of kit colours in Euro finals, with the latest data from 2021. Multiple factors were then analysed to create a ranking, including the number of times the colour has been seen in a final, the number of times it has won, and the number of times it has lost.

Blue comes in first place, with a final score of 72.83. The colour has been seen 13 times in the 16 Euro finals, giving it a score of 6, and has won eight of those appearances, giving a perfect score of 10. Italy, who wear an all-blue kit, won the last Euros, and have qualified for this year’s competition. Croatia and Slovakia, who similarly sport an all-blue kit, have also qualified.

Red is in second place with a final score of 69.44. Red has a 50/50 split of wins to losses, winning eight and losing eight. Red has the second-highest number of losses of any colour seen, giving it a score of 3.33. Czechia, Austria, and Serbia are just some of the teams that have qualified this year who wear a red kit.

White takes third place with a final score of 66.67. White has been seen 21 times in a Euro final, the most of any colour, awarding it a score of 10. However, white has also had the greatest number of losses, 12, meaning it was given a score of 0 in this category. 12 out of the 20 teams who have already qualified wear a white kit, including England, who lost the last Euro final. Black is fourth on the list, with a final score of 49.50. Five out of its nine appearances resulted in a loss, giving it a score of 5.83 for the overall loss rate.

Albania, who wear black shorts, have already qualified, this being their second ever Euro qualification. Orange is fifth, with a final score of 37.33. Although orange has not lost any matches, giving it a score of 10, it has only made it to a final once. This drops its overall win rate and times in a final score, receiving 0 for both categories. The Netherlands, wearing an all-orange kit, won the Euros in 1988, and have qualified this year. 

Green comes sixth, with a final score of 36.28. The colour has made it to a final twice, winning one and losing the other. Portugal, the only team in history to have worn green in the final match, have qualified this year. Yellow is named the unluckiest colour to wear, with a final score of 30.61. It has only made it to one final and lost, scoring 0 for both times in a final and win rate. Romania wears an all-yellow kit in their matches and has qualified this year, with their best result in the past being the quarter-finals in 2000.
