German second division side VfB Stuttgart will wear a special shirt tonight (May 28, 2020) for their blockbuster clash against HSV at the Mercedes-Benz Arena. The two teams are currently second and third in the 2.Bundesliga and are separated by a single point in the league table.
Instead of their traditional white shirt, Stuttgart will play in a black jersey with a central red band. For the team captain, the central area will carry the message “Wir sind Fans von Euch” (We are your fans).
Other messages, to be worn on the other player shirts, are as follows:
Danke für Eure Solidarität (Thanks for your solidarity)
Danke an die Helden des Alltags (Thanks to the heroes of everyday life)
Danke für Eure Nachbarschaftshilfe (Thanks for assistance to your neighbourhood)
Danke für Euren Mut (Thank you for your courage)
Danke für Eure Hilfe (Thanks for your help)
Danke für Euren Einsatz (Thank you for your efforts)
Proceeds from the sales of these jerseys will go to charity (VfBfairplay and Corona-Soforthilfe)
