Why do football players wear armbands on their biceps?
Those narrow straps are to prevent tendinopathy. By taking some of the load off the muscles and tendons near their attachment points they reduce the likelihood of tearing, particularly of the triceps tendon when falling on the hands. Physical therapists give these to the players to prevent lateral and medial epicondylitis and outright rupture injury and keep them in the game with less pain. That and alot of people, my self included where it because it looks good.

Bands that are worn the wrist are for sweating. Most football players, tennis players, etc. will also wear tight bands around their elbows because with repeated stress the ten…dons of the elbow will slowly and painfully begin to pull away from the bone of the elbow. This is where the pain in your elbow originates. With continued, repetitive use of the elbow the tendon-bone connection weakens and the pain in your elbow steadily increases. By placing continual pressure on the tendons that connect the Flexor and the Extensor muscles to the Medial and Lateral Epicondyles the tension at the point of connection to the bone is significantly reduced.
They could be just for looks, which is probably the case.
So that they know or tell the people (notify) theyare the captains.
THE BLACK ARMBANDS ARE FOR EDDIE COX WHO WAS A PDC OFFICIAL WHO LOOKED AFTER THE PLAYERS AT VARIOUS EVENTS WHO DIED RECENTLY AGED JUST 51.

According to the New York Times article (see related links below), the armbands are nothing more than the current fashion trend with the purpose of showing off their upper arm… definition. Wearing the armbands (in many cases wristbands moved up to the upper arm) has no medical or performance benefit.
the armband has all of the plays that the players need to know on it.
In memory of Roberto Rosato who died today; a former Italian national team player.
Magnetic bands for balance
The arm-bands are miniature playbooks. They have the name of certain plays and the specific instructions for the player's position. This keeps the players from having to memor…ize hundreds upon hundreds of plays, and gives them a cheat-sheet if they forget something.
1 italian soldier died in Afghanistan this week so there wearing a black arm band.
This depends. Some wear armbands to stop the sweat from dripping down their hands, wear it to look cool... and lastly, some wear armbands to protect their arm from rubbing/sti…cking against the bass.
for terry of course
They wore black armbands in memory of former Chelsea and Manchester United manager Dave Sexton, who died at the age of 82.
