Full Dortmund X-Mas Kit History - Tradition Terminated In 2013

Sunday, 13 October 2019
Christmas might be still more than two months away, but many stores are already selling products related to the traditional Christian celebration. Football teams are infamous for selling Christmas stuff not really related to soccer. One exception was German club Dortmund, who had a tradition of releasing special 'X-Mas' kits for Christmas that were also worn in matches.

Dortmund X-Mas Kit History - 2003-2014

The first BVB X-Mas football kit was released by the club in 2003, the last season (2003-2004 campaign) in which Dortmund made their kits in-house. Nike released no X-Mas jersey in 2004 - the Swoosh started to release them in 2005.

With Kappa, who became BVB's kit maker in 2009, the X-Mas series was also not continued seamlessly. In fact, Kappa released a 100th anniversary BVB SE kit in their first season, and did also not release a X-Mas kit in 2011 (they launched a Derby kit instead).

Current supplier Puma only launched two X-Mas football shirts, in their first and second season. However, in fact, Puma actually only released one last BVB X-Mas jersey (in 2012). The 2013 X-Mas kit was promoted as SE Winter kit instead of X-Mas jersey, but can be still considered to be taken into the "X-Mas listing".
