RB Leipzig Joins Nike Elite Range

Leipzig signed a kit deal with Nike following the club's promotion to Bundesliga 2 in 2014. Now that Leipzig will become one of ten Nike Elite clubs we'll see a number of changes.

For one, Leipzig's match kits for 20-21 will be based on the next-gen Vapor AeroSwift template.

It's also confirmed that Leipzig will have 100% bespoke kits instead of 'sharing' graphics with 'second-tier' clubs such as Frankfurt, Kaizer Chiefs and San Lorenzo.

We will also see a Nike Leipzig 2020-21 third kit based on the Air Max-inspired theme that we'll see next season. No specifics on the Leipzig 20-21 third kit have been leaked, however.
