Featuring now Arsenal player and 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 away and third kits have been launched.
Like the club’s 12/13 home kit, the red Die Geißböcke (The Billy Goats) away jersey 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.
The black third kit is accented by gold stitching and with a v-neck collar area and diagonal pinstripes.
