Sponsors Galore - The Ugliest Kits - Austrian Bundesliga 2021-22 Kit Overview

This is an overview of all the shirts for the 2021-22 Austrian Bundesliga season.



There are a total of 8 kit manufacturers in the Austrian Bundesliga, with Nike being the most frequent with 4 out of 12 teams. Apart from Puma, who sponsor 2 clubs, the remaining 6 sponsorships each go to a unique kit supplier. It should also be mentioned that a majority of the shirts is based on teamwear. This is because most of the Austrian teams are not supplied directly by the big kit manufacturers, but through the help of retailers, such as 11teamsports.


Most big football leagues in the world limit their teams to one or two sponsors on the shirt. However, due to more relaxed regulations in terms of shirt sponsors, the jerseys from Austria's top-flight are usually packed with various brand logos. This makes for asthetically unpleasing kits, with sponsor logos even found on the front and back of shorts.

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.

The dark blue and red 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).

SK Puntigamer Sturm Graz

The Nike Sturm Graz 21-22 home shirt is black with dark grey stripes and white logos, including monochrome sponsors. It is based on the Nike Striped Division IV teamwear template.

LASK

The LASK home shirt has a very simplistic design compared to the previous years. While the last several iterations of the jersey have always featured black and white stripes, the BWT LASK 2021-22 home jersey is just plain white. The only non-white parts of the shirt are the collar and the lines separating the sleeves from the main body. All logos show up in their original colors, with the crest of Oberösterreich (the state in which Linz is situated) placed in the middle of the chest.

The away shirt utilizes the same template as the home, but with inverted colors. The BWT LASK 2021-22 away jersey also has thin white vertical stripes running down the front. The back of the kit however is fully black.

RZ Pellets Wolfsberger AC

Made by the small company sanSirro, the Wolfsberger AC 2021-22 home shirt has a grey base with a black collar. This is a slightly unusual color combination for the club, which normally plays in white and black.

The WAC 2021-22 away jersey is light blue, featuring an interesting design with thin white lines all over the front, back and sleeves.

WSG Tirol

Home

WSG Tirol's home shirt for 2021-22 is very simple, based on the white version of the Puma teamFINAL Graphic teamwear template. It features the very common all-over hexagonal honeycomb pattern.

Away

The WSG Tirol 21-22 away shirt is based on the same template as the home shirt, but comes in green.

Third




Based on the Puma Liga teamwear template, the WSG Tirol third or cup shirt is mainly light blue with white on the top of the sleeves, collar and sleeve cuffs. Unfortunately, it is plastered with sponsors, a problem the home and away jerseys do not present.

TSV Egger Glas Hartberg

Home

TSV Hartberg's 2021-22 home jersey is probably the most shocking in the Austrian Bundesliga. It features by far the most shirt sponsors, making it hard to get a proper look at the actual shirt design, which is based on the blue Adidas Condivo 21 teamwear template. To make matters worse, the club's main sponsor, Profertil, advertises itself with the words "#1 Spermbooster". It's safe to say Hartberg's 21-22 shirts will likely not be very sought after by the fans.

Away


Images via 11teamsports

Just like the home shirt, the TSV Hartberg 21-22 away jersey suffers from too many sponsors. It is mainly pink and based on the Adidas Campeon 21 teamwear template.

FK Austria Wien

Created using Nike's custom kit service, the Nike Austria Wien 2021-22 home shirt is purple and white with differently sized tonal hoops - the hoops are the same as on the France 2020 home kit.

The Nike Austria Wien 21-22 '110 Years' away shirt celebrates 110 years since the club was founded. It is entirely white with purple used for the logos and text, except for the Nike swoosh, which is in black. It is based on the simple Nike Park VII teamwear template.

SV Guntamatic Ried

Home

SV Ried's green and black 2021-22 home shirt is not nearly as horrendous as Hartberg's, however, it does have one particularly ugly sponsor. Located on the left sleeve, the sponsor called Gourmetfein advertises itself with a picture of a bread roll and meatloaf placed on a solid white rectangular background.
The big frontal main sponsor, Guntamatic, also makes little effort to fit with the overall design of the shirt, which has a dark green base, sublte vertical pinstripes and black sleeves. There is also a sublte graphic of a Viking's helmet near the bottom.

Away

The Ried 21-22 away shirt could not have done more to contrast the home jersey. It is bright red and has the same features as the home shirt.

Cashpoint SCR Altach

Home




In terms of limiting the number of sponsors, the Altach 21-22 home shirt is relatively well off. It features a white base combined with a black hoop around the chest area, however this does not continue onto the back. What detracts from the overall look of the jersey are the big, yellow Pfanner logos, two of which are placed on each sleeve (front and back).

Away




SCR Altach's 2021-22 away jersey has a yellow base as well as a black sash design. Main sponsor Cashpoint comes with a black area underneath, which basically ends up looking like a hoop similar to the one on the home shirt.

FC Flyeralarm Admira

Home




Admira Wacker's 2021-22 jerseys are probably the most simple ones in this overview. The Admira 21-22 home shirt is mainly black with a grey fingerprint pattern on the sleeves. It is based on the Nike Strike II teamwear template and does not suffer from too many sponsors.

Away




Admira Wacker's 2021-22 away jersey is also based on the Nike Strike II teamwear template, this time in red.

Third




The Admira Wacker 2021-22 third jersey is solid light blue apart from the logos. It is based on the simple Nike Park VII teamwear template.

SK Austria Klagenfurt

Home




Promoted side Austria Klagenfurt's kits are manufactured by Capelli, a rising American sportwear brand that has already taken over the German 3. Liga.

Klagenfurt's 21-22 home shirt combines a purple base with vertical white pinstripes, based on the Capelli Brooklyn Pinstripe template. The overall appearance of the jersey benefits from there being no overly large sponsors.

Away




Just like the home shirt, Klagenfurt's 2021-22 away jersey is also based on the Capelli Brooklyn Pinstripe template, but in a custom color combination. This time, the colors are reversed, providing a white base with purple pinstripes.

Third
