After releasing the Christmas edition and the Cup Final edition 2 weeks ago, the BVB home jersey for the 2008/2009 season was presented today at a press conference. The Nike jersey will have a whole new design with a pinstriped look and a solid yellow color. The V-shaped collar will be in the club´s second traditional color black. The pinstripes along the torso, sleeves and back will give the new home jersey an elegant look reminiscent of the BVB jerseys from the 1980s. The BVB logo with the star designating BVB´s three Bundesliga titles are on the left side of the chest, the Nike swoosh is on the right side of the chest.
The shorts are all black with the BVB logo on the right thigh. However, BVB can also play in all yellow as there is also a set of yellow shorts. The yellow socks, also with black pinstripes going around them, complete the new uniform.
The jersey is made from the Nike Dri-Fit system using innovative and highly functional materials which help the players reach their full potential even under different conditions. Nike Dri-Fit transports perspiration through the jersey material away from the body where it can evaporate, keeping the skin fresh and cool. Additional mesh inlays on the sides and on the back also support the fast relief from perspiration.
The jersey comes in a "body-fit" style, with special emphasis on the athletic build. It is not only shaped to accent the athletic build, but it will also make it more difficult for opponents to slow down a BVB player by pulling his jersey.
The jerseys should go on sale around mid-July at all BVB shops and at partner stores for € 69,95 for adult sizes or € 54,95 for children´s sizes.
