Borussia Dortmund wore their 2021 special edition PUMA kit during Sunday’s 4-1 German Bundesliga win over Werder Bremen on Sunday.
The black and neon yellow jersey is inspired by the home and away shirts worn by BVB in the mid-1990s. The club won the 1995 and 1996 Bundesliga titles and the 1997 UEFA Champions League during this period.
Borussia Dortmund says that the kit pays tribute to the heroes of the 90s and the era they shaped. Sublimated images of BVB legends Michael Zorc, Karl-Heinz Riedle, Lars Ricken, Matthias Sammer, Julio Cesar, Knut Reinhardt, Stephane Chapuisat, Stefan Klos, Jörg Heinrich, Paul Lambert, Flemming Povlsen, Paulo Sousa, Heiko Herrlich and Günter Kutowski appears on the front and back of the jersey.
BVB CEO Carsten Cramer commented, “The heroes of this era have led BVB from the 80s with the relegation battle into the historically most successful decade of our club history. With this jersey we want to remember our own strength and visualize what is inside of us at the beginning of this extremely challenging decade.”
