The 2002/04 away shirt would see the return of the classic white styling, but would have a completely different look on account of the absence of the familiar red trim. Marketed with the slogan Ein Ballett in Weiß, the smart-looking design would be completed with mid-grey trim on the V-neck, three shoulder stripes and sleeve cuffs.
Part of Adidas’ new “Climalite” design, the shirt is constructed out of different materials, including breathable mesh panels at the side with the both Adidas logo and club crest stitched onto the shirt.
The 2002 designs would incorporate a number of significant changes, the most obvious being the change of main sponsor. Having sported the Opel logo on their shirts from the late 1980s, the club would sign an agreement with Deutsche Telekom’s mobile arm T-Mobile. This first version of the T-Mobile logo would be in grey – matching the shirt’s trim – with the “T” in the company’s immediately recognisable pink colour.
The second and arguably less noticeable change would be the subtle alteration to the club crest, which would now read “FC Bayern München” rather than the more complete “FC Bayern München e.V.”
This shirt has no number or player name, but has the famous legend “FC Bayern München” in grey embossed text on the back.
