This is the new Augsburg special jersey 2020, a limited edition fourth shirt that will be worn by the club for their clash against VfL Wolfsburg on 16 May, 2020. The game will be Augsburg’s first ever in the Bundesliga without spectators as the league resumes after Covid-19, and to commemorate this occasion, manufacturers Nike have come up with a special kit that was officially unveiled today (May 15, 2020)
The predominantly black jersey has the words “Augsburg halt Zusammen 2020” on the front instead of the logo of traditional shirt sponsors WWK Insurance.
When the Bundesliga was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic, Augsburg were 14th in the league, with 27 points from 25 games.
1907 pieces of this special black jersey (the club was founded in 1907) have been made available for sale, with 19.07% of the proceeds going to charity.
