Featuring Germany World Cup 2006 and 2010 star Lukas Podolski, 1. FC Köln finished the 2011/12 German Bundesliga season in 17th place and were relegated to the 2. Bundesliga. As the three-time Bundesliga champions now look for a swift return to Germany’s top-flight, the 1. FC Köln Erima 2012/13 home kit has been launched.
The new Die Geißböcke (The Billy Goats) home reiterates the club’s connection to the city of Köln with its skyline and the statement “Meine Liebe, Meine Stadt, Mein Verein” (“My Love, My City, My Club”) included on the inner neckband of the shirt.
It features woven pinstripes similar to those on the FC Köln 1982/83 Bundesliga championship jersey along with a retro polo collar, new back lettering designed with fan input and an Erima hologram.
