FC Bayern Munich debuted their third kit for the 2016/17 season during Saturday’s friendly against Inter Milan in Charlotte, NC. The new shirt pays tribute to the club’s Bavarian roots as they aim for more Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League glory in the forthcoming campaign.
The shirt is also called the FC Bayern München 16/17 Champions League kit since it will be the twenty six time German champions first choice alternate shirt for their European season.
The FC Bayern München 2016/17 adidas third kit is white with silver accents, in a nod to the club’s European success, and is completed with a burgundy collar. The adidas three stripes have been moved from the shoulder to the side panels and the sleeves feature a subtle diamond pattern.
The diamond pattern is echoed in the centre of the club’s crest and is a replication of the same pattern which appears on the flag of Bavaria, to showcase the club’s regional heritage.
The shirt also features the Bayern Munich motto “Mia san mia,” which translates as “We are who we are,” on the inside of the shirt’s collar.
