New shirt based on a much-loved kit that inspired a classic celebration
Released to coincide with the twentieth anniversary of the club switching their main jersey from red to navy
Retro style combines with modern technology thanks to new breathable mesh
adidas Football and German champions, FC Bayern, have today revealed the club’s new away kit for the 2017/18 season. The new navy kit with red stripes has been released to coincide with the twentieth anniversary of the club switching its home jersey from red to navy.
The design will be recognisable to fans of the German champions, as it is based on one of the club’s most loved kits. Notable among them was a famous celebration by former player Giovane Élber in a 1999 game vs Wolfsburg where he wrapped himself in a carpet at the side of the pitch. The adidas design team sought to channel the creative spirit behind this moment in a shirt that will be worn as FC Bayern look to win a sixth straight German title next season.
The new away jersey combines this striking design with the latest adidas Football technology. An example of this design-meets-performance approach comes with the red stripe across the shirt. It is made of a highly breathable mesh material, allowing for better air circulation keeping players cool and on top of their game in any conditions.
The kit will be available to purchase in the FC Bayern online store, in adidas global retail stores, the adidas online shop (www.adidas.com/football) as well as in all FC Bayern-Fan-Shops from July 7.
