Today, adidas launches the new FC Bayern Munich third kit, paying homage to the club’s home, the Allianz Arena, with a bold red diamond graphic print.

Set to be worn under the bright lights of the UEFA Champions League , where FC Bayern Munich will be going for its sixth title in the world’s greatest club competition, the shirt draws inspiration from the red glowing diamond pattern featured in the Allianz Arena’s outer shell. The hand painted red diamond Rauten design, which can be found in the crest of the club and in the Bavarian flag, allows wearers to carry a key element of the club identity with them wherever they play or go.

As is traditional on the club’s shirts, the slogan “Mia san mia” can be found as a sign off on the back of the neck.

The new jersey boasts the latest in adidas’ temperature regulation innovation, HEAT.RDY – KEEP COOL, which is designed to keep players feeling cool, dry, and confident during play. The replica shirt offers similar benefits thanks to the inclusion of AEROREADY – FEEL READY technology, keeping fans cool when the temperature starts to rise.

The new third jersey will launch on 10th August, ahead of the UEFA Champions League Tournament in Lisbon. The jersey will be available to purchase at the adidas online shop (, the FC Bayern Munich club and online store, as well as selected adidas stores, retailers and fashion stores from 17th August.
