Home / Soccer Fans / Bayern Munich Home Jersey 2011 Review


If you are a Munich fan, you may not have been too happy with the results of the biggest German football club this campaign. This squad won’t be out of commission too long though, as the squad has too many good players (Schweinsteiger, Ribery, Muller, Robben, Gomez, Lahm) and supposed reinforcements (Manuel Neur, Ashley Young, Jerome Boateng) coming in this summer to get right back in the fray to compete for trophies again next season. They’ve got a serious upgrade in kit design for their home affairs at the Allianz with this new Bayern Munich jersey.

Instead of the stripes from this past season’s home threads, Adidas has opted for a “red-all-over” design that looks fantastic, sharp, and much more professional than one year ago. The kit color is a bit different (darker red) than the home kit of year’s past and it makes for a breath of fresh air. Vertical lines subtly line the front part of the shirt and add a touch of class. The same sponsorship is retained for the shirt and still looks great. In the meantime, Adidas has still taken over the production of this shirt, but the logo has moved to the left side of the chest, a much better design choice than in the center of the shirt. In addition, the Munich crest ditches the outlined pattern of years past and sits simply and flush against the right side of the chest. The best part of the jersey, however, in terms of a look is the classy gold stripes accenting the shirt. Some may argue that gold on a soccer jersey doesn’t really belong, but it really works with this jersey, so just give it a chance before you knock it. Three stripes line the shoulders, a nod to the production company (Adidas), while gold accents round out the sleeves.

Not much has changed in the area of performance, however. Don’t worry: that’s a good feature. This Adidas kit features all of the quality you’d expect from a world-renowned soccer brand. ClimaCool technology keeps you comfortable regardless of what shenanigans you get in with this shirt on. 100% polyester material keeps this shirt lasting a long time. The shirt also seems to be a bit lighter than last year’s kit, for whatever reason that is. I’m not complaining though. Overall, the shirt is a big upgrade over last year’s home threads so if you’re looking to root on a soon-to-be revitalized German giant, you can’t go too wrong wearing this kit while you do it.
