The 2016/17 season is drawing to a close, but as it seems, it’s not too early to look ahead for the next season, and that’s exactly what Bundesliga’s two biggest clubs have in mind as they unveil their 2017-18 kits.
The German Champions, Bayern Munich, officially released their home kit for the 2017/18 season this morning.
The new retro Adidas kit features the design of Bayern’s 1974 red with thin white stripes jersey, and pays a tribute to the great seventies sides, including the legendary players such as Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Müller and Uli Hoeness.
Mats Hummels, Thomas Muller and Juan Bernat modelled the kit.

The latest kit comprises of thin white stripes along with thick red stripes on the front accompanied with a white trim on the sleeve. The Bavarians haven’t had a red and white striped design for a few years now, but with the latest home kit, they seem to bring back the “Mia San Mia” attitude that they have been known for.
Rivals Borussia Dortmund have also freshened things up, and they too have released the new kit for the next season.

BVB will don their new kit this weekend against Werder Bremen in the German Cup final in Berlin. The new Puma kit features sporadic horizontal stripes, as the shirt fades from yellow to black that has already made Marco Reus a big fan of the design.
“I like the new design that Puma has developed. The horizontal stripes with the color gradient are really cool,” said the German star. “We want to celebrate a terrific end of the season with the new jersey and then we want to attack in all competitions and celebrate great successes in the new season.”
