After finishing in 4th position in the 2008/09 German Bundesliga, Hertha Berlin fell to 18th (or last) position at the end of the league 2009/10 season. As a result, Berlin’s best-supported club were relegated to the second tier of German soccer, the 2. Bundesliga, for the 2010/11 season.
As Hertha Berlin gears up for a promotion run back to the Bundesliga, they’ve launched their Nike 2010/11 home kit. According to the Hertha website, the new Hertha BSC kit represents “aggression, identification, and sustainability” and like Nike’s World Cup 2010 shirts are each made of eight recycled plastic bottles.
