Home jersey JAKO, adults'

The new home jersey is more than just than a match kit! It is also a sign of our fans' identification with the Werkself. For our return to the Champions League, our players wanted a classic home jersey in the club colours: Our new home jersey is therefore designed in diagonal stripes of two light shades of red. The collar and sleeve ends are black. The club emblem is on the heart side and the WERKSELF lettering can be read in the neck area.

Please note that printed jerseys are non-returnable and non-refundable (unless they are in some way faulty). This also applies in the event of a player leaving the club or changing his jersey number in the course of his time at the club.
