This is the new Bayer Leverkusen derby shirt 2022, a special limited edition jersey that Bayer 04 will wear in their upcoming Bundesliga clash against local Rhineland rivals FC Koln on 13 March, 2022. This Leverkusen cream jersey has been made by kit partners Jako, with only 1,930 shirts (1930 being the year that the city of Leverkusen was founded) going on sale to the general public.
Partners Barmenia and Floki have given up their advertising space on this special kit, with the Leverkusen city coat of arms appearing on the jersey instead. The words “our team for a better world” can also be seen on the shirt.
Jako have also said that this football shirt has a chip that allows users to scan it with a smart phone to get additional information on the jersey. Proceeds from the sale of this shirt will be used to support Ukrainian refugees via the Leverkusen Community Foundation.
