KitStory: Bayern Munich Home Kit
The Bavarian club Bayern Munich was formed when members of the MTV 1879 Munich sports club broke away to form their own club in 1900.
In their early times, from 1900 to 1905 Bayern Munich first wore white tops with black shorts before swapping over to red shorts shortly after.
The kit remained thus until the 1968/1969 season when they changed to red and blue striped jerseys, with blue shorts and socks - not dissimilar to the Barcelona kits that we know so well today..
A slight adjustment was made with the kit between the periods of 1969 and 1973, with the Bavarians changing to a home strip of red and white striped shirts with either red or white bottoms and red socks.
Then, from 1974 onwards things changed. The popular red home kit with white trim became standard. Although there was a brief change to the red & blue strip between the periods of 1995 and 1997, they quickly returned to the standard red kit and have kept it ever since, often mixing it with either a touch of blue or white.
Recently, the Bavarians extended their kit deal with Adidas until 2030 for a fee of €900m (£645m). The only club with a similar agreement with Adidas is Manchester United who signed a (10-year agreement with Adidas for a record £750m).
