Over the past two seasons, Bayern have opted for a rather tame and ‘vanilla’ away kit. This probably has something to do with the fact that the Bavarians went for an extremely bold “mint chocolate chip” colour scheme in the 2018/2019 season. Nevertheless, the decision was made to head back towards the non-traditional direction and go with something that would stand out, and it looks like that move was for the best.
Based on the leaks, Bayern’s new away kit features a black foundation with beautiful golden-metallic accents and trim. This is a much-unexpected reveal as gold is quite off-course from the traditional team colors. While there isn’t too much details to judge the kit from, it could shape up to be quite the look!

Based on the fact the shirt is already going with a strong black and gold look, it seems highly likely that the kit will remain very clean and simple in its design. The club has had several dark or black shirts in recent years, but none quite like this.
This follows a trend that we are seeing across football at the moment, where we are seeing more and more of this black & gold combination. The closest comparison would be FC Barcelona’s 2020/2021 away kit, which Bayern’s new kit should look incredibly similar to, which is by no means a complaint. They look incredible.
Another example of a club to use this palette is Ajax with their 2020/21 Champions League kits. While the German national team has used these colors in the past, this particular combination is brand new for Bayern Munich and could become a kit to remember.
Since Bayern Munich’s 2020/2021 home kit has been leaked, we will wait to see when the club reveals their third kit for the upcoming season. There were some fairly early leaks back in December, but those leaks seem accurate as they did specify that Bayern’s new away kit would be mostly black with an unknown accent color. For now, we have these details to speculate on.

Bayern Munich is really spicing things up with their kit selection in the upcoming season and honestly, they are looking great. All this news will be confirmed and announced by the club in the summer, but fans certainly have a lot to be excited about at the moment.
