Bundesliga Rivals Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have a back-to-back release of their respective away shirts. Not only are they clashing in the top-flight of German football, they are also showcasing competing kits from the nation’s (and the world’s) top sports brands, adidas and Puma. For their latest away jerseys, Bayern continues to take inspiration from its decade-worth of consecutive Bundesliga success, while Dortmund marvels at the unity of its fans in and out of the Signal Iduna Park. Even the base colour of the shirts are the direct opposite of each other, which symbolises the fierce competition between the two clubs.

A first in the club’s history, the adidas Bayern Munich away of 2022/23 is white with gold accents. The shirt has no graphics or fancy design. And all its class and elegance are carried by the strong metallic effect of the selected golden shade applied to the monochrome logos, template shoulder stripes, and the short sleeve edge cuff detailing. A simple round collar finish in white complements the clean look of the jersey.

A dazzle checker pattern in asphalt adorns the predominantly black Borussia Dortmund Puma away shirt of 2022/23. The abstract visuals represent the flags and scarves waved by loyal Dortmund fans. Only the righthand-side carries the graphics, leaving the opposite side plain for a half-and-half look. The short sleeve cuffs and collar contain a central striping in yellow.
