What is the Away Team in Football?
The away team in football is the team that is visiting and playing at their opponent's home field. In Football games, the away teams must wear the opposite jersey color that the home team wears. In most cases, the home team must wear white or a primary team color. If the away team wishes to wear their home uniforms or an alternate colored uniform, the league commissioner must be given notice and approve of the colors.
Away Team Advantages
There aren't many advantages to being the away team in a Football game as you're playing in a very noisy environment wherein very few in the stadium want your team to win. However, the away teams get to choose the side of the coin they'd like during the coin toss which determines who will get the ball first in the game. If the game goes into overtime, another coin toss is held and the away team get to select their side of the coin again.
