This is the new Bayer 04 Leverkusen home shirt for the 2008/2009 season made by Adidas.

On November 27, 1903, Wilhelm Hauschild wrote a letter – signed by 107 of his fellow workers – to his employer, the Friedrich Bayer and Co., seeking the company's support in starting a sports club. The company agreed to support the initiative, and on July 1, 1904, Turn- und Spielverein Bayer 04 Leverkusen was founded.

On May 31, 1907, a separate football department was formed within the club. In the culture of sports in Germany at the time, there was significant animosity between gymnasts and other types of athletes. Eventually this contributed to a split within the club: on June 8, 1928, the footballers formed a separate association – Sportvereinigung Bayer 04 Leverkusen – that also included the handball and fistball players, athletics, and boxing, while the gymnasts carried on as TuS Bayer 04 Leverkusen. SV Bayer 04 Leverkusen took with them the club's traditional colours of red and black, with the gymnasts adopting blue and yellow.

First impression is that I\'m really not sure...I\'ll be interested to see what it looks like once the sponsor\'s logo on it.

They\'d probably be called \'Bayer 03\' if the Bayer bosses were not busy marketing heroin as a child\'s cough medicine at the time... Nice shirt.

It just looks like a generic top with a Bayer crest stuck on it. I wish there was there was more emphasis on the club rather than the kit brand, but I understand that it\'s all very commerical now. Love the colours and design, but think that the club crest seems to much like an \'afterthought\'. <br /><br />I can\'t wait to see spyshots of the new Hibernian shirt by Le Coq Sportif.
