Colour psychology and sports — are they related?
It’s interesting to consider colour psychology — the way that different shades can affect our behaviour and way of thinking. Red supposedly boosts our confidence levels, yellow encourages us to become more energetic and wearing a men’s white shirt can give off the impression of being cool. Does this translate to when we’re playing sports too, though? Apparently so.
In fact, 57% of FIFA World Cup winner played in blue, and Ireland have lifted The Six Nations trophy four times wearing green over the past ten years. Discover the infographic below which looks at a range of sports and how colour has affected the teams’ success.
