Open and constructive discussions have been taking place over recent weeks between the FC Bayern Munich board and various fan representatives on the topic of club colours. These discussions have resulted in a mutual agreement.

Jörg Wacker, board member responsible for internationalisation and strategy, also has responsibility for the department of merchandising explains: “FC Bayern München AG has been in conversation with fan representatives about the use of club colours in kits. For fans, kits represent an important sign of identity with their club.”

“FC Bayern München AG has thus announced that in future, only the club’s traditional colours of red and white will be used in official match clothing – that is the home kit comprising shirt, shorts and socks. We will also stay in regular contact with fan representatives in relations to kits.”
