VfB Stuttgart


The design of the home kit was unchanged from 1996-97, but Göttinger Gruppe were the new sponsors.
Adidas deviated away from the usual principle of having a reversal of the home kit for the away. Instead, the new second kit was a red and black hooped affair.
The third shirt (apart from the sponsor) and socks remained the same but the new away shorts were used instead.
There were no mashups seen domestically - for instance, Stuttgart wore the away kit at Schalke rather than using dark shorts with the home shirt - but for the European Cup Winners' Cup final against Chelsea, a socks-clash was sorted by using the away set. Unfortunately, Stuttgart lost 1-0 in Stockholm.
