Bayer 04 leverkusen unveiled the new Adidas away kit for the coming 09/10 season. The basic colour is white, the sponsor’s lettering TelDaFax Energy is a bright red and the shirt has a yellow trim.
Goalkeeper René Adler and midfielder Tranquillo Barnetta launched the new kit on Tuesday in the refitted Bayer 04 fan shop in Leverkusen-Wiesdorf.
“It’s brilliant. White is a great colour anyway but the whole thing looks really good,” declared René Adler.
Bayer 04 replace their kit every two years and after the first season with the new home kit it is time for an away kit.
The kit supplier adidas presented a number of suggested designs for sporting director Rudi Völler and the team to choose from. “The previous away kit was my favourite kit and was very popular. But I really like the new one because it is attractive, relaxed and bright. The yellow trim is a new departure,” said Bayer 04 managing director Wolfgang Holzhäuser.
After the official launch on Tuesday, the kit will be worn by Bayer 04 for the first time on Wednesday night for the friendly against Al Ahly Cairo in Wattenscheid (17.00 CET). The colours were also well-received by midfielder Tranquillo Barnetta: “It’s really great. White looks really good and it felt good when I wore it. We’ll be in the new kit for the friendly in Wattenscheid and we’ll be looking to celebrate our first win wearing it.”
The new away shirt is available from the new Bayer 04 fan shop in the pedestrian zone in Leverkusen-Wiesdorf or from the online shop for €69.90 for adult sizes.
