FOT: 1. FC Union Berlin

A Historic Moment in the Club's Journey

For the first time in the club's history, 1. FC Union Berlin is participating in the UEFA Champions League. This monumental achievement is not just about the team's prowess on the field but also extends to their apparel. In collaboration with their supplier adidas, Union has revealed a special shirt exclusively designed for their European away games. The historic first match will take place at the legendary Estadio Santiago Bernabéu against Spanish giants Real Madrid on September 20, 2023.

The Kings of Köpenick Get a Royal Look

Inspired by the black and gold shirts worn post-qualification, the new Champions League kit embodies regality and style. The primary color is black, augmented by gold accents on the shoulders and collar. The club's emblem and partner logos are also presented in this opulent gold tone, seamlessly blending into the overall design.

Exclusive Features of the New Jersey

Of course, the jersey comes with the Champions League logo—a constant on all Union's kits. Unique to this jersey is the Union International motif, which appears as a silicone label on the bottom hem. Fans will also appreciate the blank space on the jersey's back, which offers the option to personalize it with a name, just like the players on the field. The shirt is perfectly complemented by black shorts and socks.

Where and How to Get Your Hands on One

The 1. FC Union Berlin Champions League jersey, complete with the Champions League badge, is now available exclusively at Union-Zeughaus. It retails for €89.95, with a children’s version available for €69.95.

It represents a landmark achievement for the club and a tribute to the journey that led them to European football's greatest stage.
