Fan-Designed: Dortmund 23-24 Away Kit Released
Dortmund's new 2023-24 away jersey was released today, Friday, 25 August 2023, and will be debuted away against Bochum on Saturday, 26 August 2023.
Like the home kit, the BVB 23-24 away kit was also fan-designed. Indeed, BVB legend, Marco Reus, pointed out the design in Puma's official press release from March 2022. To everyone's surprise, 17 months later, the same kit will be released.
It is worth mentioning that this design was not intended to become an actual kit, as the competition was originally only for the home kit. Nonetheless, Puma decided to go for a fan-designed shirt also for the away kit.
"There were so many fantastic designs submitted in black, but this one really stood out and wowed all the jury members. So it was an obvious choice to use it as inspiration for our away kit," explains BVB managing director Carsten Cramer.

The Puma Dortmund 2023-2024 away shirt is inspired by the place where Dortmund celebrate their big titles. The Puma Dortmund 23-24 away jersey features a graphic of an aerial view of Borsigplatz.
Borsigplatz is a square in Dortmund, Germany, that is closely associated with the football club Borussia Dortmund (BVB). The club was founded in a nearby pub called Wildschütz on December 19, 1909, and the Borsigplatz has been a popular gathering place for BVB fans ever since. The square is also home to a statue of BVB legend Ernst Kuzorra.
When BVB win a major trophy, the players often celebrate at the Borsigplatz. In 2011, when BVB won the Bundesliga title, the players drove through the streets of Dortmund in an open-top bus, and they stopped at the Borsigplatz to greet the fans.
In terms of the colors, the Puma Dortmund 2023-2024 away jersey is mainly black, with BVB's classic "Cyber Yellow" as the secondary color.
Available since August 25, the Puma Dortmund 2023-2024 away football shirt retails at 95 Euro.
