On February 27, 1900, Munich’s Café Gisela was the site of a meeting which would lead to the formation of Fußball-Club Bayern München e.V.

To mark the 120th anniversary of the club’s establishment, Bayern will wear a special kit for their game against Augsburg on March 8.

Following the colour-scheme worn in Bayern’s first title win of 1931-32, the shirt features a white body with burgundy sleeves and shorts as well as black socks.

Bayern didn’t wear a special centenary kit for the club centenary in 2000, but ten years before that they did wear a 90th-anniversary strip.

Featuring blue and red stripes, as worn in the 1970s, and a lace-up collar, it was worn in two games in the successful 1989-90 season, on February 23 against Köln and March 10 against Hamburg.
