PUMA and Borussia Dortmund have today launched the new home kit for the 2015/16 season through a documentary video, which shows the importance of the shirt to both the players and the fans. Alongside some of the club’s first team players, including PUMA star Marco Reus, fans can take on an interactive role and become apart of the video through a Facebook app ‘My Personal Clip’, which allows fans to upload their photo and create their very own version of the BVB home shirt film.
The new Home shirt combines the long-standing tradition of the club with a refreshingly new look. Featuring black, horizontally placed pin stripes, the mostly yellow shirt attract attention. Black inserts along the sleeves and the v-neck collar complement the overall look of the new home kit. Inside the shirt, fans and players can find the rules of the ‘BVB Leistungsversprechen’, which is a traditional club vow promising to always strive to achieve maximum performance.
Made with high-quality polyester fabrics, the new home shirt is extremely breathable and provides optimum heat transfer when performing on the pitch. Below the armpits is mesh inserts featuring PUMA’s dryCELL technology, designed to draw heat and moisture away from the skin.
Dortmund star striker Marco Reus said, “With pre-season training starting again, excitement for the new season is building up. I really look forward to stepping onto the pitch at SIGNAL IDUNA PARK, seeing all those black-yellow fans. The new shirt is great, and I like the subtle design with the stripes across the chest. There’s no doubt we will enjoy wearing this new kit throughout the 2015/16 season.”
The new Borussia Dortmund jersey will be available in-store from mid-July at a cost of R899.
