German Bundesliga club 1. FC Kaiserlautern has launched a special edition Do You Football Fritz Walter 90th Birthday reversible kit.
The new FCK shirt commemorates the 90th birthday of the club’s greatest player, Fritz Walter (31 October 1920 — 17 June 2002). The maroon side of the kit was worn during last Saturday’s 3-0 over Borussia Moenchengladbach.

The 1. FC Kaiserslautern Do You Football 2010/11 home, away and third kits were launched in June.
