Focus on your ball skills, not your baggy pants

It might not be top of your kit list but the right underwear for a game of footy is arguably just as important as your boots. After all, if you’re inadvertently flashing the crowd in baggy boxers then nobody will be concentrating on your ball skills!

Longer options are often favoured by sports players looking for muscle support but don't forget to make sure they match your shorts to avoid the same fate as Bath City's youth players -

Snug boxer briefs offer a great level of support and often have targeted ventilation panels to help keep your boys cool. But believe it or not, close fitting briefs are fast becoming the underwear of choice to provide ultimate freedom of movement without riding up like some boxers.

Whatever your preference, all dedicated sports designs use clever fabrics to combine breathability, support and stretch with anti-chafe, seamless shapes. For example Jockey's 3D Innovations range uses material with an incredible eight-way stretch making these undies great for any sport.

For guys who like naturally breathable fabric then cotton underwear is always available, with just enough elastane to provide lasting shape. And technical microfibre, viscose and even bamboo fabrics allow skin to breath while offering a smooth, second skin fit.
