Bayern Munich and adidas have unveiled the new home shirt for the 2011/12 football season, check out our full images of the new adidas football jersey modelled by some of the star players.
In keeping with the powerful sense of a fresh start at the club, and after a season without silverware in 2010/11, Bayern will seek to recapture past glories next term in an all-new, red and gold home kit. The new Bayern Home strip, unveiled at the Allianz Arena, perfectly symbolises the Reds’ quest for a new golden era!
Subtle stripes are the centrepiece of the overall design, in homage to the Münchner Kindl, the figure depicted on the city of Munich’s coat of arms. The shorts and socks are dark red, with flair and style added by golden stripes and detailing.
Bastian Schweinsteiger joined the chorus of praise for the new design: “adidas have already provided us with many great shirts, but I reckon this one’s way out in front.” Looking ahead to the new campaign, the Germany international voiced hopes of “a golden season. That would be very appropriate.”
True to the club’s motto Mia san Mia (We are who we are), the kit strongly symbolises unity and togetherness. The shirt boasts a number of special design elements, such as the sloganMia san Mia woven into the collar in a classic font. The outside of the collar features the word Rekordmeister (record-holding league champions).
“The shirt is very, very classy, and a perfect fit with Bayern,” said club captain Philipp Lahm, who will lead the team out when the shirt is debuted on 14th May, the last fixture of the season at home to VfB Stuttgart. Expected to go on sale a day prior on 13th May, the new Bayern Munich football shirt will cost around £50 GBP / $80 USD / €65 EURO.
