SG Dynamo Dresden is a German soccer club based in Dresden, Saxony. The team was founded in 1953 as an affiliate of the East German police.
Dynamo Dresden was one of the most popular and successful clubs in East German football with eight league titles. The club was a German Bundesliga after reunification from 1991 to 1995 but has since campaigned between the fourth and second tiers of German soccer pyramid.
Now preparing for a second consecutive season in the 2. Fußball-Bundesliga, Dynamo Dresden launched its Nike 2012/13 home and away kits with modeling from players Cristian Fiel, Robert Koch and Markus Scholz. Both kits feature median stripes with five bars at the top and three at the bottom in recognition of the club’s founding year.
