During the Bundesliga match at home against Union Berlin on Sunday, fans of the league once again expressed their dissatisfaction with the new black and yellow shirt of the Champions League.
“The trophy shirt should go!This was stated on a large protest banner in front of the southern runway. Last week, the new black and yellow jersey for matches in the first division caused a sensation among the supporters of the league. The reason: The transparent club crest on the neon yellow jersey was almost invisible.
There was already criticism in May after the first draft of the cup jersey was published. At the time, the BVB team responded to fans’ outrage over the loss of the logo and capitalization in a relaxed manner and claimed that the images posted did not match the final design of the CL jersey.
In the BVB CL match against Besiktas, it turned out that there were only minor changes to the version of the shirt leaked in May (“BVB 09” lettering, transparent logo). A real firestorm of bullshit ensued against BVB and T-shirt manufacturer Puma.
Puma CEO Björn Gulden apologized to fans the next day. “We regret the anger of the fans and would like to apologize to them,” he said. dpa.
