It’s interesting to compare and contrast this offering with the 1997-98 version we looked at earlier this year.
There are only change shirts for Bayern Munich and the Germany national team, perhaps indicative of the fact that the replica market was still at a relatively early stage. That Bayern had a yellow and green strip on the road was a big deviation from the norm, though not completely unprecedented.
While the adidas Equipment era came in in 1991, it’s interesting to note that Schalke still had an older trefoil design – however, in 1992-93 they had worn a one-off Equipment design as part of an anti-racism campaign.
Their off-field gear and that of Hamburg was of a 1992 vintage while Bayern’s style of leisurewear was seemingly unique – we do have a perhaps-false memory that the USA had similar, but maybe that’s the colours playing tricks on us. Only Stuttgart training wear is of the 1993-94 style familiar to Arsenal and Liverpool supporters.
While there is a Bayer Leverkusen fans’ t-shirt available, we’re not sure why their kits are not included.
