This is because Bayerns new jersey is a love letter to Bavaria, the southeastern region ofGermanyfrom which the club have proudly hailed for the past 121 years.
With a white-and-blue colour scheme and all-over print inspired by the stunning mountainous panorama of the Alps, the club and manufacturer Adidas says the shirt is intended to symbolise Bayerns roots as well as the clubs relentless demand to aim for the highest peaks.
The design is also intended to encapsulate the Bavarian attitude to life; one of pride, hard work, tradition and progression.
The loving tribute to Bavaria has been welcomed in particular by Bayern forwardThomas Muller, who was born and raised in the region before going on to represent its most famous football club with great esteem for his entire career.
Being a born and bred Bavarian, I particularly like this look. I love the mountains, I love my home, said Muller, who has won 28 senior trophies with Bayern including 109 Bundesliga titles and two Champions Leagues.
I think its nice we can illustrate to the whole world this special attitude to life we have here with this jersey.
Muller was one of many Bayern stars who helped launch the new jersey with his teammatesAlphonso Davies,Serge GnabryandBenjamin Pavardand womens playersViviane Asseyi,Linda Dallmann,Hanna GlasandLina Magullall more than happy to be snapped in their clubs stunning new kit.
The ode to Bavaria is encapsulated in the launch video for the kit, which makes reference to the rainbow armband that Bayern and Germany captainManuel Neuerwore at Euro 2020 -- a show of inclusion and tolerance that somehowprompted an investigation from UEFA during the tournament.
Bayern will debut their brand-new Alpine-infused third kit for the very first time when they faceBorussia Dortmundin the German Supercup on Tuesday (stream LIVE on ESPN+ at 2:30 p.m. ET on ESPN+ in the U.S.).
The team will then wear it under the floodlights on Champions League nights as they bid to be crowned champions of Europe for a seventh time.
