Today, adidas Football has revealed Bayern Munich’s third kit for the 2017/18 season, designed by a fan.
When Bayern Munchen start the new UEFA Champions League campaign in the autumn, appearing alongside Manuel Neuer, James Rodriguez and co will be Joseph Maraska from Israel – symbolically at least. The 15 year-old designed the new third kit that adidas and FC Bayern presented today.
For the first time, the brand famous for its three stripes has given fans of clubs all over the world the chance to design their own kit.
Joseph has been an avid follower of FC Bayern since he was a child – and was one of six winners whose designs on the digital platform ‘Creator Studio’ made it into production.
The community then decided a shortlist, from which a panel of players and representatives from the clubs made their choice. Joseph’s design features a gradient red stripe made of the famous diamonds from the club’s crest, giving a modern twist to classic FCB kits.
