Kit-leak season is officially in full swing, and we now have a look at Bayern Munich’s main UEFA Champions League training get-up for next season via Footy Headlines. As is usually the case, teams usually have a separate training apparel for European competition, independent of their normal training range.

Let’s have a look:

Apparently this is the general style for the Champions League warm-ups of all the big clubs that have kit deals with Adidas for next season. The colors will obviously differ from club to club, but the basic design concept will be the same. As if often the case, the European training range differs in color from the normal base colors of the regular training range. In this case, we have a solid base of dark navy blue with red detailing, inspired by Bayern’s future third kit. The shirts indeed look like a hybrid of Bayern’s third jerseys from both the 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 seasons, especially with respect to the red shoulder stripes. Much like the new home kit, it features the three straight stripes on each sleeve, albeit following a different (red) color scheme.

In the second picture in the gallery above, you can see the details in the seaming on the back of the top, which give the appearance of a mesh-type shell, most likely to give the kit some ventilation. The whole back of the kit also appears to be just a shade lighter than the front. On closer inspection, the side of the kit including the sleeves seems to be a shade darker than the rest of the kit. Per the last picture in the gallery, the top is paired with navy blue warm-up pants that also contain a red monochrome Adidas logo (left leg) and Bayern team badge (right leg).

Obviously fans give the club a lot of stick when they stray from Bayern’s main colors, but these, surely, are far better than the bleach stain warm-ups that Bayern will primarily be sporting next season, no?

BONUS: Ribery leaks new home kit on his Instagram

We already put out a piece detailing the leak for next season’s home kit, but Franck Ribery inadvertently confirmed the kit on his personal Instagram account earlier today. He took a brief video of a slew of boxes containing the new kit with the thinking face, joyous laughing, and hands up (praising) emojis. The jerseys are likely to be officially unveiled by the club in the coming days as they’re scheduled to sport them during the final league match of the season at home against Eintracht Frankfurt. We’re not sure if Adidas or Bayern are ok with Ribery’s sneaky little leak, but we’re ok with it, and as we all know, Ribery doesn’t care what you have to say!

You all know the drill by now. Cast your vote!
