Rapid Wien 21-22 Home Kit

This is the new Puma Rapid Wien home shirt for 2021-22.

The Puma Rapid Wien 2021-2022 home shirt is white with green sleeves and a blue-red sash on the front. This marks the first time since the color change in 1906 that the club's original colors are present on the home shirt.

The sash design of the Puma Rapid Vienna 2021-22 jersey also pays homage to the 1953-54 shirt, which was green with a white sash and worn in a league title-winning season, as well as the 2007-08 shirt, which also ended up leading to a league championship.

Green shorts and socks complete the new Puma Rapid Wien 2021-22 kit.

Rapid Wien 21-22 Away Kit

The dark blue and red away Rapid Wien 21-22 away jersey is reminiscent of the club's roots in several aspects - Rapid Wien was founded as 1. Wiener Arbeiter Fußball-Club (1st Vienna Workers' Football Club)

Firstly, the color scheme. The 1st WAFC was founded on July 22, 1897, with the colors blue and red. The origin of this color scheme lies with the colors of the hat factory of the Böhm brothers in which the workers who founded the Arbeiter FC worked.

The founding coat of arms shows a great similarity to the logo of the hat factory. In comparison, however, the colors were exchanged here, blue above, red below. The away jersey, however, picks up the original variant with red above, blue below again and thus refers to the roots in the hat factory.

Arbeiter FC would be celebrating its 125th birthday in 2022, and would thus be playing in the corresponding jersey at the start of this anniversary year.

Deign-wise, the kit features special Puma 2021-22 graphic.
