Umbro Launch Werder Bremen 120th Anniversary Shirt

In celebration of the Werder Bremen's 120 year anniversary, Umbro have launched a special limited-edition shirt, which is set to be worn by the players in their home game against FC Augsburg this Sunday.

Loud is the word to sum up Werder Bremen’s 120 year anniversary shirt. Or, to be more precise, Lauter, which is German for loud. Because this shirt celebrates 120 years of Werder and it pays homage to the league’s loudest fans through an extraordinary combination of the past and the future, in a mashup shirt that’s as loud as the fans themselves. 

To celebrate our anniversary we wanted to look back on our moving and proud club history but also ahead to the future,” explains Klaus Filbry, Werder’s board chairman. “We wanted to set ourselves something daring. Therefore the anniversary shirt has a bold and modern design.” Yep, it sure has.


The anniversary shirt features the green tones used for the home shirts over the past decade, along with club slogans “dare and win”, “120 years”, “Werder”, “1899”, “green and white for life”, and “the W on the shirt”, all in German, of course, in a sublimated design.

“Dare to Win” has been the rallying call of Werder Bremen since its inception in 1899, and the phrase features on the shirt design below the collar on the back of the neck. A label including the Bremen key with a sequential number will make each shirt completely unique and will become a personal souvenir, granting access to the LAUTER WERDER anniversary album. Just what you never knew you wanted.


The Umbro Werder Bremen 120 Year Anniversary Shirt is limited to 1899 copies and is available here.
