Stuttgart 21-22 'World Kit' Released - Debut This Weekend
VfB Stuttgart and their outfitter Jako have released a special jersey that is "sending out another important signal for ecological sustainability". The VfB professionals will wear it on Saturday in the clash against Borussia Mönchengladbach (March 5, 2022., 6:30 p.m.).
The special jersey is produced from recycled textiles. All other Jako Stuttgart jerseys of the 21-22 season were already produced in an environmentally friendly way from 100 percent recycled bottles, and now the next development step now follows.
Revolutionary? The kit is made from recycled textiles and not recycled plastic bottles
VfB Stuttgart 21-22 World Kit
This is the new Jako Stuttgart World jersey for 2021-22.
The Jako Stuttgart World shirt is cream-colored with a dark red breast ring.
For Cannstatt - For Stuttgart - For our world
"VfBfairplay – Wir tragen Verantwortung – Für Cannstatt – Für Stuttgart – Für unsere Welt (“VfBfairplay - We bear responsibility - For Cannstatt - For Stuttgart - For our world") is embossed as a message on the front of the jersey, which is numbered consecutively.
Rouven Kasper, Director of Marketing and Sales at VfB Stuttgart: "VfB Stuttgart is setting standards with this jersey, as the recycling of used textiles is the most sustainable approach in clothing production to date. The fact that we can set an example for this makes us very proud. We are grateful that in JAKO we have an outfitter and partner who is intensively concerned with ecological and social challenges in the textile industry and is looking for forward-looking processes. In addition, the jersey has also become really chic and we hope that it will bring us luck in the home match against Mönchengladbach on Saturday."
Tobias Röschl, Marketing and Sales Director at JAKO: "Sustainability is teamwork. We are demonstrating this together with VfB and eight other professional clubs under the motto 'Our Team for a better World.' With the jerseys made from recycled textiles, we are taking a first step towards a true circular economy. We are delighted that VfB Stuttgart has joined this idea from the outset and is a great supporter and contributor to our umbrella campaign."
