Featuring Heavy Metal Festival Wacken's Foundation On The Front - Carl Zeiss Jena 17-18 Kits Released

The foundation of the world-famous heavy metal festival Wacken Open Air will have their logo on the kits of German 3. Liga club FC Carl Zeiss Jena, it has been announced by the club last week. The Wacken Foundation was founded by the organizers of the Wacken Festival and promotes bands and artists from the heavy metal scene.

The Wacken foundation is not a sponsor, as pointed out by the club, but gets the advertising space for free from the club backer and sponsor 'Heaven Shall Burn". The letter of the Thuringian heavy metal band "Heaven Shall Burn" will instead be found on the sleeves of the jerseys.

Puma Carl Zeiss Jena 17-18 Jerseys

These are the new Carl Zeiss Jena 2017-18 kits, which are made for the first time by Puma.



The new Carl Zeiss Jena 17-18 home, away and third jerseys feature stylish designs, based on Puma's Pitch Teamwear jersey.

Interestingly, the new Carl Zeiss Jena 17-18 home kit is black and silver, while their traditional home kits are white / blue. The new away kit is white / black, while the third jersey is blue / white. Each of the kits features a monochromatic club logo.



The band "Heaven Shall Burn" has been the sponsor of the club since 2015. The Wacken Open Air has been celebrated annually since 1990 in the municipality of Wacken in Schleswig-Holstein. It is considered one of the biggest metal festivals in the world, with around 85,000 visitors.

According to information of German newspaper 'Ostthüringer Zeitung', the club is still looking for a company to become the club's new shirt sponsor, possibly to take over the sponsor place from the start of the new year.
