Begs the question is it for identification purposes of trial by video ? Will it will identify on field players from each other . Fans will clearly know who they are supporting or heckling , and umpires will know who to penalise !

Where will the name go ? Above the number ? Or under the sponsor ?

Historically , many sporting codes have printed the players names on the back . The British EPL , and European Football Clubs , have done so for many years .

Does this mean the humble AFL football jumper , jersey , guernsey , is finally coming of age ?
