FC Bayern Munich, together with sponsor Adidas, unveiled its new away kit for the 2022/23 season on Thursday. The inspiration was a popular Bavarian card game.
The dark grey Bayern away jersey comes with red stripes on the shoulders and a red finish on the sleeves – other elements are also in this red. The design highlight is the “discreet, slightly contrasting diamond pattern that runs across the front of the jersey”. In reference to the traditional Bavarian card game Schafkopf, the symbols of the leaf colours acorn, grass, heart and bell can be recognised within the diamonds.
The price for the alternate jersey, which is made of 100 per cent recycled polyester, is 90 euros. The “Authentic Version”, which is worn by the professional players, is available for 140 euros.
The new kit will be worn for the first time next Sunday in the home match against VfL Wolfsburg.
