The figures from the typeface Bauhaus, used by Real Madrid and Roda JC, are characteristic, especially the 2 with a curve on top that almost makes a complete circle. A comparable 2 is seen in the typeface Blippo, used by FC Utrecht (Utrecht, the Netherlands). But Blippo has some sharp corners (see 3, 4 and 7), where Bauhaus' corners are rounded.
Just as in Bauhaus Heavy the counters of Blippo are very small, which restricts legibility. Blippo surely is a remarkable face, but I wouldn't recommend to use it for shirt numbers.

Figures from Blippo.
