The 1991/92 home Trikot would see a number of new features, the first of which would be a new blue and white shoulder design on the traditional red background. The design is simple enough, with the modern-looking v-neck adorned with what was then a new identity for Adidas. Instead of the famous trefoil the maker’s name consists of three embossed diagonal bars and the legend “Adidas Equipment”.
The embossed FC Bayern badge on the right of the shirt is applied onto the material – the sort of thing that with too much washing would fade away and eventually fall apart – while on this version the main sponsor, car manufacturer Opel, is part of the shirt print design.
The 1991/92 design would be FC Bayern’s first shirt of the commercial era, and the first to be available from regular sports shops outside Germany – well, it was the first Bayern shirt that would be widely available in the United Kingdom.
