Bielefeld 20-21 Special Kit Revealed

Update: The slogan "Football lives through its fans" ("Fußball lebt durch seine Fans") won the vote of the fans with 51%. Bielefeld will play on the 30th matchday against FC Schalke with the special jersey.

Bundesliga club Bielefeld presented a new special-edition shirt earlier today, to be worn in the match against Schalke in late April.

Macron Bielefeld 2020-21 Special Jersey

This is the Bielefeld 2020-21 special shirt, made by Macron.

Inspired by the club's first Bundesliga shirt in 1970, the Macron Bielefeld 2020-21 special football shirt introduces a classic look in blue and white, combined diagonally.

Three sponsor options of the Macron Bielefeld 20-21 special football shirt were available via a vote on the club website.

Option two ('Fußball lebt durch fans' - 'Football lives through fans') won ahead of option 3 ('Ostwestfalen' - that's the club's home region). Option 1 (club motto 'Stur, hartnäckig, kämpferisch' - 'Stubborn, persistent, combative') was far off.

White shorts complete the new Macron Bielefeld 20-21 special uniform. The color of the socks is not known yet.

Interestingly, this kit seems to be the club's first to feature the new, brighter shade of blue that was introduced to the badge last year. There was supposed to be a vote on this matter at the general meeting but that did not take place yet due to the coronavirus pandemic.
