The Black and Yellows of Bundesliga has now shared its third shirt that will be present in their UCL and DFB-Pokal quests. In the same way that it pays tribute to the Nobby Dickel’s status as ‘Hero of Berlin’ for his 1989 DFB Pokal finals display against Werder Bremen, the outfit acknowledges the significant contribution of the people behind the scenes, be it individuals from the training staff or the security personnel. The meaning behind the shirt takes greater depth as it debuts on the pitch right on the heels of its release.

Borussia Dortmund’s third kit takes note of the title-winning 1989/90 Finals shirt for its design. The retro inspiration centres on the black-white-black stripes that angled from the shoulders and toward the front side. While the 2022/23 cup kit retains the asymmetrical length of the featured design, it changes the composition, using smaller diagonals for a dynamic effect rather than the solid fills of the original. Another change is that the right side stripes are generally longer than the left, plus their narrowing width as they get closer to the black round collar. Like other recent Cup jerseys, the base colour is Cyber Yellow.
