Kappa Mainz 05 20-21 Home & Away Kits Released

Update: The new Kappa Mainz 05 2020-2021 away kit was officially released. Based on the same design scheme as the home jersey, it is white with the striking geometrical graphic print in contrasting red on the sleeves.

Confirming our suspicions, the actual Mainz 20-21 kit was revealed by the club in a video yesterday and launched earlier today. It's not the one that appeared earlier, which was indeed a planned "fake leak".

The Mainz 20-21 home kit is the first to be produced under the new Kappa kit deal.

Mainz 2020-21 Home Shirt

This is the Mainz 2020-2021 home football shirt, made by Kappa.

A bespoke design, the Kappa Mainz 05 2020-21 home football shirt is predominantly red with a subtle graphic print on the front, inspired by the club's still relatively new design identity.

The standout feature of the Kappa Mainz 05 20-21 jersey are the sleeves, which feature the same chevron pattern in a much smaller scaling in white on red.

The shorts are white and the socks red.

The new Kappa Mainz 20-21 away kit is white and red. Continuing the design scheme of the home kit, the new Mainz 2020-21 away kit boasts the new "trademark" club design on the sleeves.

The kit has a crew neck with the Mainz coat of arms on the neck. In addition, the jersey has been enhanced with a Mainz 05 logo in 3D look on the left, a red Kappa logo on the right chest and two white Kappa logos on the red accents of the sleeves.

Fake Leak

A Kappa x Mainz jersey has appeared in a video released by the club. While one might initially think this is the new 20-21 kit, it does look distinctly different from other Kappa Mainz shirts.

This, as well as the fact that the club is known to be quite marketing savvy, this shirt was purposedly "planted" in the video as a sort of troll job. It does look suspiciously like a someone put Mainz' logos on an old Kappa Kaiserslautern shirt - and Lautern is a rival of the club to boot.
