SV Werder Bremen will debut their Nike 2015/16 home kit when they meet UEFA Champions League aspirants Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday, May 16th in the penultimate round of the Bundesliga season.
According to Nike, the lighter green tone for the new home kit, brings a sense of vibrant energy to Werder Bremen’s on-pitch look. It kit sports new white sleeves that areconnected by a white panel running across the shoulder blades.
The kit’s modern design updates are rooted firmly in the club’s heritage. White sleeves are a recurring feature in Werder Bremen kits since the 1960s, and the club’s 1974-75 kit included a similar shade of lighter green.
The 15/16 Bremen shirt has a light green modern V-neck collar and a light green cuff on the sleeves, while a white stripe runs down each of the shirt’s flanks. The home shorts are also light green with a white stripe on both sides, designed to connect with the shirt’s stripes. On the back of the shirt are the club’s initials, SVW, which stand for Sportverein Werder Bremen (Sports Club Werder Bremen).
The new Werder Brenem home socks also feature the new lighter shade of green, with Werder Bremen’s darker green represented on the back of the calf in a wide stripe of chevrons.
