TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and Joma, the club’s technical sponsor, have launched the kit for next season with the novelty of a shirt made from recycled polyester.

The sports brand has launched a new line of sports equipment made of innovative fabrics and processes that can help to reduce plastic pollution and carbon emissions to the atmosphere.

Plastics, one of the main agents of biodiversity loss, are processed to become 100% recycled polyester yarn. This will in turn be transformed into more than 100 meters of sustainable fabric which will be used to develop and produce Joma’s new collection and TSG Hoffenheim´s first kit 2020/2021.

The new high-performance fabric keeps breathability and comfort qualities, characteristic features of Joma garments. MICRO MESH SYSTEM technologies are applied, which give extra breathability by allowing air circulation from the outer side of the garment to its inner face. It provides quick drying so the athlete can feel comfortable during the whole exercise. FLATLOCK SEAMS are also applied, which provide comfort and avoid chafing.
