When Devin Booker casually "unveiled" himself under the cheering of his colleagues, the secret was finally revealed: The new home jersey of the German champions is here!

The Bavarian basketball players wore the kits for the first time on Tuesday evening at the atmospheric team presentation for season ticket holders in the Audi Dome - the jersey is now available for everyone at the online shop. The new jersey comes in a colourful contrasting look and typical sporty design with a contrasting V-neck. "The jersey feels very good," said FCBB captain Danilo Barthel.

Start in Zadar against ZSKA Moscow

On Wednesday evening, FCBB will travel to Croatia for the top-class tournament in Zadar. There they will have the dress rehearsal for the season start on September 28th in Ulm and the home premiere against Vechta on Wednesday, October 3rd (German Unification Day) at 3 pm. 

"Of course we can't be 100% satisfied with the preparation because Milan injured himself", said coach Dejan Radonjic on Tuesday evening. "But otherwise we are on schedule and are now looking forward to the important games in Zadar. I am sure that we will be ready for the start of the season in Ulm."  

Radonjic will have the complete squad at his disposal for the first time in Zadar, with the exception of Milan Macvan, wh recently underwent knee surgery. The international players Barthel, Petteri Koponen, Vladimir Lucic and Stefan Jovic will all be there for the club. Before his official test match debut, Maodo Lo is ready to go after getting over some recent issues with his foot.

The 5th "Zadar Basketball Tournament" (20. - 23.9.) is made up of five EuroLeague squads: Fenerbahce Istanbul, Olimpia Milan, Maccabi Tel Aviv, ZSKA Moscow and Bayern. The Liaoning Flying Leopards from China complete the exquisite field.

Bayern will play in Group B and start on Friday the 21st at 8 pm against the Russian star ensemble, ZSKA Moscow around stars, Sergio Rodriguez and Nando de Colo. The duel with the CBA team from Shenyang, the capital of the Liaoning province, located in north-eastern China, will take place on Saturday at 6 pm. The placement matches will be held on Sunday.
