Nike announce new partnership with German side Eintracht Frankfurt and reveal new 2014/15 kits that pay homage to the club’s rich history and honor past club heritage.

The classic home kit idesign features the club’s traditional red and black stripes but with a tonal chevron graphic in the background to add a modern flourish – replicating the chevron stitching found on the club’s shirts from the early 1960s. The shirt also has a black crew neck collar with a small red V-shape; on the back is a new black panel to boldly display the players’ name and numbers above the black and red stripes.

At the top of this panel beneath the neck are the initials SGE, standing for Sportgemeinde Eintracht – an early version of the club’s name, which has since become a popular nickname among their supporters. The new home shorts are black with a thin red stripe along each side whilst the socks are black with a red band at the top and once again feature the initials SGE and a tonal stripe of chevrons on the back.

The away kit honors the most glorious and important moment in the club's history to date. In June 1959, Eintracht Frankfurt became the champions of Germany for the first and only time by beating Kickers Offenbach 5-3 in the final in front of a crowd of 75,000 at the Olympic stadium in Berlin. The new away kit is a moden interpretation of the kit they wore 55 years ago.

The shirt is white with deep black cuffs at the sleeve and a black constructed crew-neck collar with a small black V-shaped insert. The kit also pays homage to the traditional colours red, black and white, which were worn by the eldest Eintracht predecessor Victoria Frankfurt in 1899. After Victoria and Frankfurter Kickers united in 1911 to Frankfurter Fußballverein, the merger with Turngemeinde created the football club Eintracht Frankfurt in 1920.

As per the home shirt, the back of the away shirt carries the initials SGE. The new away shorts are white with a thin black stripe along each side. The away socks are white with a black band at the top and feature the same SGE initials and chevron design as the home socks.
