Footy Headlines — the authority of kit leaks online — is challenging the Racine Sports tweet and is insisting the pic posted is a fake:
If this leads to a brawl between websites, I am all for it.
Racine Sports posted a picture of what it claims to be the new Bayern Munich home kit for the 2021/2022 season.
As you can see in the photo below, the two-tone red jersey also features the “superhero v-design” that anticipated a few days ago. Surely, this is a kit that many fans will like:
Spoiler! I am not one of those people.
Anyway, here is the tweet that references the “superhero” feel to the kit. I don’t know if I necessarily see all that, but let’s go on with it:
FC Bayern's home kit for next season pays "tribute to all the superheroes in the club’s world - the players on the pitch and the fans in the stands".

My opinion on this probably does not matter as I can barely dress myself. What I can tell you, though, is that this is my least favorite kit design overall since the 2018/2019 away kit mint massacre.
As far as home jerseys go...I’d say this is my least favorite since 2016/2017 — which wasn’t an awful design, but featured a terrible collar. I was also not a big fan of 2006/2007 as far as the home kits go. I am staunchly anti-collar and would be happy to never see a Bayern Munich kit feature a collar ever again.
