“Men of Steel” – this is the slogan under which PUMA and Borussia Dortmund present the new BVB away kit today. The design is inspired by steel, which has characterized the city of Dortmund for over a hundred years since the mid-19th century.
By way of a homage to steel, the shirt is dominated by the colours black, grey and silver. The broad vertical stripes have been kept black, with a black and grey graphic now visible between them.
The logos of PUMA and Evonik and the two formstrips on the shoulders have been kept in striking silver, while the sole dash of yellow comes from the club emblem on the chest. One special detail is the print that reads “Forever Borussia Dortmund” in German at the neck.
The jersey features PUMA’s dryCELL technology, a moisture-controlling technology that is incorporated into the material to draw sweat away from the skin to the surface, ensuring a dry interface on the body even during strenuous exercise.
The new away shirt will be available from 16 July, retailing for R999 at PUMA stores and selected retailers.
