FC Bayern München will play a special match at home to TSG 1899 Hoffenheim this Saturday.
The adidas x Parley FC Bayern München jersey, which is composed 100 per cent of plastic recovered from the ocean, was modelled by midfielder Xabi Alonso at the pre-match press conference on Friday. The kit is made from fibres recycled from plastic waste recovered on the coasts of the Maldives. Adidas, a co-founder of "Parley for the Oceans", supports the organisation in a bid to end plastic pollution in the world’s oceans.
The DFL - Deutsche Fußball Liga - and their premium partner Hermes also support the one-time action and do so without the visibility of their logos on the shirt’s sleeves, which are blended into the colour of the top for the game against Hoffenheim.
