Worn Against Dortmund - Reversible 1. FC Köln 70th Anniversary Kit Revealed

German Bundesliga club 1. FC Köln and their kit supplier Erima yesterday revealed a special kit to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the club. The special 1. FC Köln 2018 70th Anniversary jersey worn during the 2-3 defeat against Borussia Dortmund yesterday night.

“This kit brings FC history to life and is a worthy end to our successful collaboration with ERIMA, for which we are sincerely thankful. The design features many things our fans have wanted for a long time, such as the old logo,” said FC Managing Director Alexander Wehrle. ”Although we decided on a high quality and cost-intensive option for our anniversary kit, we will not sell it for more than we would a normal kit. Our fans are basically getting two shirts for the price of one.”

This is the Cologne 2018 70-years anniversary jersey.

Inspired by the kit the club wore during their first league title win back in the 1963-64 season, the special Köln jersey is all-white with white pinstripes running down the jersey. To make it look more authentic sponsors Rewe, DEVK and kit manufacturers Erima all have their logos in the usual positions on the football shirt but coloured white. The colors of the goat on the club logo have changed from black and white to brown, giving it a more retro look.

True to the claim of combining tradition with innovation, the kit can be turned inside out. The result? A second kit. The Swiss company pictureUnited used its patented technology for the first time on a FC kit to present 70 photos from the club’s history in the lettering of 1948 – 2018.

The 1. FC Köln 70-year anniversary kit is available for a price of 79.99 Euro.
