What is the longest player name that has ever been used on the back of a team’s football kit for a players name. We’ll pick up one contender for the title who appeared today as a substitute for Blackburn Rovers against Bolton in the 2-1 win at the Reebok. Zurab Khizanishvili. If you know of a longer name that has been on the back of a players shirt then please let us know. For working out if anyone else is longer, Khizanishvili is thirteen letters long. Updated: Sewey89 found Jakub Blaszczykowski which is fourteen letters.
Updated to Venegoor of Hesselink, do all nineteen characters appear on his regular Celtic shirt?
We’ll update the page each time somebody comes up with a longer name, now looking for a single word longer than Blaszczykowski.
