It's basically for safety, so the people playing do not get hurt. Without pads there would be injuries all the time, and maybe even deaths, and its hard to find good football players, but mainly it's for safety and to keep them secure.

American football players wear many things under their uniform. These include shoulder pads and thigh pads. If you are talking international football (soccer) then the main piece of equipment players wear under their uniforms are shin guards.

You don't and they don't. They generally wear knee and thigh pads but most skill postion players choose not to wear those either. I played for years and have NEVER seen shin pads!

Yes, I play football at the Pro level and there are many skilled position players as well as special teams players that only wear shoulder pads and helmets.. In practice we sometimes only wear shoulder pads and helmets we call it pro-pads we also wear this during training camp a lot and when we are not going to hit full speed.

High school and college players are required to wear; helmet, mouth piece, shoulder pads, hip pads, a butt pad, thigh pads, knee pads, and clears. A lot of the time you'll see nfl players not using their knee pads and or thigh pads bc they aren't required

Helmet Shoulder Pads Tail Pad (Tailbone) Thigh Pads Knee Pads Cleats Gloves, Rib Protectors, Girdle, Helmet Visor, and any other pads are optional.

Futsal Laws of the Game require that all players wear shin guards, similar to the rule for Association Football (soccer).

My guess would be Ice Hockey. Given that American football players wear shoulder and leg pads as well as a helmet; ice hockey players are required to wear a helmet, shoulder pads, padded pants, elbow pads, and shin/knee pads. Don't forget the padded skates, gloves, and mouthguards!

Football players wear cleats, short padded pants that go to just above the knee a jockstrap, (optional) Shoulder pads, Helmet, a mouthpiece and various other accessories.

A lot of players don't wear pads in their pants, because they believe it will slow them down; whether it be speed, agility, or simply, reaction time. This is why so many players object to the NFL's new rule in the 2013 season, stating that it will become mandatory for players to wear thigh and knee pads. Personally, I agree with the players. In college, I wore Yeh smallest(youth) pads I could find, and during my stint in arena and semi-pro, I NEVER wore them... So it kind of makes sense to me.

It depends a little on the player and position, but there are 10 basic pieces of equipment helmet, shoulder pads, a tailbone pad, 2 hip pads, 2 thigh pads, 2 knee pads, and a cup. Mouthguards are pretty much necessary, but not really a pad. Outside of that some players also opt to wear flack jackets, back and/or sternum plates, neck rolls, forearm pads. Some players do not wear a cup. (As a point of reference, virtually every major league baseball player wears a cup, while most NFL players do not.)
