After revealing the basic design concept of Bayern Munich’s unreleased 2018-2019 home kit last month, Footy Headlines has updated its prediction of the jersey design that Bayern will wear at home next season. The overall design is a plain red jersey that stands out only on closer inspection:

The novelty of the kit lies primarily in a subtle, shaded diamond pattern over the body of the jersey. The effect, though, as one astute observer (my wife) pointed out is somewhat reminiscent of Charlie Brown—probably because the Deutsche Telekom logo and the Bayern crest distract the eye, leaving the pattern most prominent in the middle of the shirt.

The new kit will naturally also feature the patented (and hence, here, pixelated) white Adidas stripes on the shoulders, along with white trim on the sleeves and a white collar with navy blue detail. The shorts that go along with the kit will be the same color of navy blue, evoking some kits that Bayern have worn in the past.
