    Early television was in black and white, and the clarity wasn't nearly as precise as it is today.  When the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation was testing for live hockey broadcast in 1952, they found out that if both teams wore their traditional colors, it was very difficult to differentiate them.  They solved the problem by having the home team wear white, while the visitors remained in their darker uniforms.  This concept caught on and was adopted by other sports as well,.
