Bayern Munich Launch ‘Classic’ Look 2020/21 Adidas Home Kit

Bayern Munich have launched their new adidas home kit (on sale now at adidas) for the 2020/21 season, a red jersey with white trim that has a distinctly ‘classic’ look. It will be worn with red shorts and red socks.

The plain red is a departure from some of the more vibrant or bold kits Bayern have used over the past 30 years, with no feature blue shirts this time around.

“The familiar look combines awareness of the club’s tradition and solidarity with the entire FC Bayern family,” Bayern says of its new shirt.

The trademark Adidas stripes are white to contrast with the red color of the shirt, while a subtle striped design appears on the body of the shirt for a different look from this season’s more graphic designs.

The goalkeeper kit will be a blue-green strip for stopper Manuel Neuer.

Bayern will wear the new 2020/21 kit for the first time in Wednesday night’s DFB Pokal semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt. Bayer Leverkusen are set to book a place in the final against Leverkusen after seeing off fourth-tier Saarbrucken with ease in their own semi-final on Tuesday.

Despite early competition from RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund, Bayern are closing in on an eighth consecutive Bundesliga title. Having beaten Leverkusen in their last outing, Hansi Flick’s side need just two more wins from their last four games to claim the trophy again.

Bayern’s torrid start to the season, which culminated in the sacking of former coach Niko Kovac, saw them drop to seventh place at one point. But, since mid-December, the Bavarian giants have taken a possible 48 to 46 points to climb back to the top and are clear of the rest.

The real killer blow in the title race came shortly after the season resumed from the enforced coronavirus hiatus and a Joshua Kimmich solo goal defeated Dortmund in Der Klassiker.
