BV Borussia Dortmund is a German sports club based in Dortmund, North Rhine-Westphalia and is best known as one of the most successful clubs in German football. In addition to six German football championships and two DFB Pokal victories, Dortmund won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1966 (becoming the first German team to win a European title) and the UEFA Champions League in 1997.
Today, Borussia Dortmund and new kit provider Kappa presented the club’s home, away, third and goalkeeper kits for the 2009/10 German Bundesliga season. Here’s a look at them.
According to the club’s website:
The main colour is yellow, supplemented with dynamic, sickle-shaped elements in black. The black shoulder area includes the Kappa logo that fades into a logo band with the famous brand mark. “Together with BVB we have developed a modern design that emphasises the trademark Borussia Dortmund and is free of any gimmickry,” said Kappa´s Cornelia Schmidt.
The away shirt, a real eyecatcher, has a distinctive design of sunrays. The yellow rays are the most prominent feature of the new black away jersey, which takes up elements of the “100 Jahre BVB” (100 years BVB) logo. “We are immensely proud to partner with BVB in their centenary year and we cross our fingers that the team of coach Jürgen Klopp has a great start to the season in the new kit,” said Peter Schmidt.
The new event shirt of Kappa is red and white, inspired by the city colours of Dortmund. Roman Weidenfeller was also at the presentation, showcasing the new and striking goalkeeper´s outfit.
