Champions Bayern Munich have released their 2022/23 kits, which will feature a one-off badge to commemorate their unprecedented achievement of winning 10 successive Bundesliga titles. But what will their rivals be wearing? bundesliga.com presents the latest threads as they drop...
The shirts combine the official colours of the club and the city with FCA’s long tradition as a club. The 2022/23 home shirt features the colours red, green and white. Not only are these the official club colours, they are also the official colours of the city of Augsburg. The main colour of the shirt is red, while green and white horizontal stripes round off the design. Numbers and player names are printed on the shirt in white. Script reading “rot-grün-weiß” (red-green-white) is printed on the back of the shirt under the collar.
FCA’s new away shirt will once again be white. A pattern of thin, horizontal red stripes adorns the sleeves of the shirt, while numbers and player names will be printed in red. The back of the shirt includes the Latin words “Augusta Vindelicorum” under the collar, which refers to the city of Augsburg. The highlight of the shirt is the Augsburg skyline on the front, which drives home the club’s connection to the city and will serve as a reminder of home, even during the club’s upcoming away games.

"Different from day one" is how BVB have coined their new strip, combining tradition and modernity as they look back to 19 December 1909 and the Wildschütz restaurant where 18 young men founded Ballspielverein Borussia.

The neck of the shirt features the words “Borussia verbindet” (Borussia unites), a reminder from the club that we can overcome all odds if we stick together.
The flags that the fans wave in the stadium can also be seen in the new away jersey. They have been stylised into the check pattern of the 2022/23 shirts so the team carry the support with them even on the road in this black strip with yellow accents for Die Schwarzgelben.
