This is the new Mainz carnival kit 2021, a special edition jersey for Bundesliga side FSV Mainz 05. Made by Kappa, this Mainz Fastnacht shirt was officially unveiled in the first week of February 2021. This is also Kappa’s first attempt at a carnival jersey after taking over as the club’s kit partners from Lotto at the beginning of the current campaign.
Only 1905 shirts (the year of the club’s founding) will be available for purchase. The reverse of the jersey has the names of those Mainz season ticket holders who opted not to take a refund when games were being played behind closed doors during the pandemic. Continue reading
Barcelona will look to make it three Nike teams in the last four of the Champions League when they take on German champions Bayern Munich in Lisbon. PSG’s win over Atalanta and Leipzig’s triumph over Atleti means two of the four teams in the semis are already Nike ones. If Barca can get the better of Bayern and Man City (Puma) see off Lyon, we could have a case of no Adidas outfitted teams in the top four of Europe’s premier club competition.
Bayern are expected to don their new Adidas change kit for this game, presumably to avoid a kit clash with the Blaugrana’s home uniform colours (FCB are the designated home side, even though this game is being played on neutral ground in Lisbon). The Bavarians wore their darker European kit against Olympiakos and Leipzig, but will be donning next season’s 20/21 uniform here. Continue reading
This is the new Dortmund home kit 2020/21, BVB’s new home strip for the upcoming Bundesliga season. Made by Puma, the new Borussia Dortmund jersey was officially unveiled on July 1, 2020, although the club had revealed parts of it a few days earlier in a wipe challenge video.
BVB’s new 20/21 home shirt seems to feature a unique lightning style pattern on the front, leading to fans dubbing it the “Electrabuzz” jersey. This is also the first BVB top to sport the 1&1 logo after the web hosting and domain company inked a deal earlier this year. Dortmund were sponsored by Evonik last season, and wore the Medox logo in the Klassiker against Bayern. Continue reading
This is the new Borussia Monchengladbach home kit 2020/21, Gladbach’s new primary jersey for the upcoming Bundesliga season. Made by Puma, the new MGB shirt was officially unveiled on June 29, 2020. Die Fohlen also chose to announce their new shirt sponsor- online brokers Flatex, who take over from Postbank.
Postbank have been on the front of Gladbach’s jerseys since 2009 and were reportedly paying the club somewhere around 7 million euros. The new Flatex deal is for a period of three years (till 2023) and will see the Frankfurt based firm pay Borussia around 10 million euros a season.
Gladbach finished fourth in the 2019/20 Bundesliga season, behind champions Bayern, BVB and Leipzig, thus ensuring a spot in the group stages of the Champions League next season.
No details of the shorts and socks were released by Gladbach, but the kit is expected to go on sale later this week. It will also serve as the club’s 120th anniversary strip- Borussia were founded back in 1900, and this is indicated by the 120 Jahre words below the club badge. Continue reading
