The required equipment for playing soccer is specified in the Laws of the Game which is created by the association of football. When you sign up with the Toronto Azzurri soccer organization, your registration will include a regulation soccer ball, a soccer jersey, soccer shorts and socks. To play soccer you only need to have approved shin guards and a pair of soccer shoes. Soccer equipment is generally cheap, which makes it affordable for anyone to buy.
EyeGlasses are allowed if they are sports spectacles and are safe for the players themselves and for other players. Referees should show tolerance when authorizing their use, particularly for younger players. Materials such as metal or glass are not acceptable. In recreational and house league games referees are expected to show common sense and allow spectacles as long as the basic principals of Law 4 are met.
