The Nike FC Eintracht Frankfurt 2020 Special football shirt does not feature a bespoke design but is the same as the regular 2020-21 away kit, just with the lettering #BlackLivesMatter instead of the regular sponsor logo. The logo of indeed is next to the text.

Frank Hensgens, Managing Director Indeed Germany, says: "Due to the dramatic current developments we will use our global platform to stand against historical and current systemic racism, violence and hatred. We are proud to work together with Eintracht Frankfurt, united in our shared belief in the importance of diversity and inclusion and in our unwavering opposition to racism. Leaving the jersey breast for #blacklivesmatter is a clearly visible sign of our stance against racism and our support for black people."

For Eintracht board member for sports Fredi Bobic, the team's support for this campaign is a matter of course: "Every day we demonstrate in our team that skin colour, origin and religion do not play a role in a community. Everyone is there for everyone - on the field and off. This should also be the case in our society, no matter where. As a team and as Eintracht Frankfurt, we stand together against all forms of racism and want to take this to the outside world.

White shorts and socks complete the new Nike FC Eintracht Frankfurt 2020 Special strip.
