The design of the shirt that Borussia Dortmund will be wearing in the DFB-Pokal and the UEFA Champions League next season has emerged online.
Borussia Dortmund released their home kit for the 2022/23 season last week. And now the possible design for the cup kit for next season has been leaked by the usually reliable Footy Headlines. If the pictures are to be believed, the Black and Yellows’ cup kit for next season will take inspiration from the kit they wore in the 1989 DFB-Pokal final.
Borussia Dortmund won the DFB-Pokal during the 1988/89 season, and it was their first major trophy in more than two decades. The 1989 DFB-Pokal triumph ushered in a new and hugely successful era for the club.
Spurred on by their DFB-Pokal triumph, Borussia Dortmund went on to win two Bundesliga titles, the UEFA Champions League and the Club World Cup during the 1990s.
Puma will no doubt be hoping that next season’s cup kit receives better reviews from fans. The cup kit for the 2021/22 season was subject to heavy criticism from supporters, and Borussia Dortmund were forced to make a few tweaks to the shirt in response to all the negative feedback. Puma CEO Björn Gulden even apologised to the BVB supporters after all the criticism of the cup kit.
As always, Borussia Dortmund will wear their cup kit in the DFB-Pokal and the UEFA Champions League next season. Both the cup kit and the away kit for the new season will likely be released in the coming weeks. Fans can purchase the newly launched home kit for the 2022/23 season here.
