Every era has its own story. With an era each of us associates their own heroes and stories as well as special moments of vital importance – and in this case even a colour: oh, you radiantly beautiful neon yellow!
Who thinks of BVB in the 90s, automatically has the heroes from back then in their neon coloured jerseys in front of their eyes. A good 30 years later the players of Borussia Dortmund once again wear a neon yellow jersey on the pitch: In the game against Werder Bremen on Sunday the players play in a unique retro jersey.
The jersey, that will be worn in this game only, will pay tribute to the heroes of the 90s and the era they shaped. The images of BVB legends Michael Zorc, Karl-Heinz Riedle, Lars Ricken, Matthias Sammer, Julio Cesar, Knut Reinhardt, Stephane Chapuisat, Stefan Klos, Jörg Heinrich, Paul Lambert, Flemming Povlsen, Paulo Sousa, Heiko Herrlich and Günter Kutowski are shown on the special jersey behind which is the message “Every era begins with the will of their heroes”.
“The heroes of this era have led BVB from the 80s with the relegation battle into the historically most successful decade of our club history,” says CEO Carsten Cramer and continues, “With this jersey we want to remember our own strength and visualize what is inside of us at the beginning of this extremely challenging decade.”
In the 90s BVB was able to win the UEFA Champions League and two German championships. In this decade the upcoming opponent Werder Bremen was the strongest competitor in the historic duel for the 1995 championship, the first black and yellow championship in decades.
The jersey is offered from now on exclusively in the online shop. It comes in a special box and costs 84.99 €.
BVB thanks their supplier PUMA and main sponsor 1&1 as well as sleeve sponsor Opel and the Deutsche Fußball Liga who have supported the idea and the design of this special jersey from the beginning.
