so the players, refs or umps, and spectators can easily see who is on what team. there is a tradition in most Baseball and Basketball of wearing white at home and a colour on the road and in football usually the home team wears a colour and the visiting team wears white (the Dallas Cowboys choose to wear white at home and so the visitors then have to wear a colour since in football its the home teams choice, this usually means the cowboys wear white all season)
