New home kit unveiled

The wait is now over: FC Bayern Basketball’s new kit has been available since Tuesday morning. The German Champions’ new home kit for the upcoming season, in Bayern’s traditional red, was unveiled in a presentation in adidas’ head office in Herzogenaurach. The Chairman of adidas, Herbert Hainer, was present at the event, and personally greeted Svetislav Pesic and his team at the “adidas World of Sports.”

“I’d like to thank the Coach for making this happen, even though they are in the middle of pre-season training” said Hainer in front of roughly 500 adidas colleagues. He then proceeded to congratulate the team on their success last season as well as the development of the club: “FC Bayern’s performances in the Bundesliga and Euroleague last year have helped increase the popularity of basketball in the city” said Hainer. He later spoke of his soft spot for the sport and FCBB specifically: “It’s a quick game; the end to end nature of the game is fascinating. The atmosphere in the Audi Dome on gameday is incredible.”

Svetislav Pesic returned the favour and thanked those who turned out to see the kit being unveiled, under the backdrop of an 11m replica of the new vest. “Thank you for coming out, there are plenty of you!” In regards to the upcoming season, Pesic added: “Our aim for the new season is to repay adidas’ faith in us by winning a couple of titles.”

After the presentation was complete, the Bayern players signed autographs for the onlookers, who were also able to practice their free-throws. FC Bayern Basketball’s 2014/15 Bundesliga campaign begins with a home match in the Audi Dome against Mitteldeutschen BC on Thursday October 2 (20:30 CEST).
