Bayer Leverkusen present new home kit for 2024/25 season

Bayer Leverkusen have unveiled their new home kit for the c2024/25 season.

German champions Bayer Leverkusen have revealed the home kit they'll be wearing for the 2024/25 season.

The dark red Castore shirt with black collar and sleeves features several elements of the city: the diamonds from the water tower, a cross made from the embattled bar of the Leverkusen coat of arms and parts of the city map.

It's the first official team shirt to feature the championship badge and has the word 'Werkself' in white on the collar.

"Our new home jersey is unique for our fans for several reasons. It combines striking elements of Leverkusen worked into the design. Our double winners will again wear our USP, the Cross, next season. And for the first time, in our 120th year, the gold champions badge will adorn our sleeve. It's already a legendary jersey," said Bayer Leverkusen chief marketing and innovation officer Marcus Breglec.

Midfield linchpin Granit Xhaka describes the jersey as “a great success”.

“It has classic elements with the black sleeves that stand out from the base colour. A typical, very traditional football jersey, this time mainly in red. I'm really looking forward to representing my club in these colours in Germany and in the Champions League,” said Xhaka, who is representing Switzerland at Euro 2024.

Take a look at the new kit below.
