The newest Bayern home kit supplied for next season features a red and blue striped shirt. Older fans may recognize it as being similar to the 1995-97 home kit, or even older, the 1969-73 away kit.
This is the first time blue has been present on a Bayern primary kit since 1997, as navy replaced blue in later kits.
FC Bayern München looked to be at their strongest this season. Bayern were dominant in Bundesliga play this season, winning their twenty-fourth league title by racking up eighty-seven points, nineteen better than their nearest rival Borussia Dortmund, and may possibly end up with ninety at the end of this season. Despite their exit from this season’s UEFA Champions League by Real Madrid, the Bavarians showed a strong defense of the Champions League crown. The reigning FIFA Club World Cup champions and current Deutscher Meister are the fourth wealthiest club in the world according to a recent Forbes report, behind Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Manchester United. It’s no wonder that adidas will supply Germany’s most prestigious club a new home kit reminiscent of another successful period in the club’s history.
