Team: Bayern Munich
Era: 2002-03 (Used for the 2002-03 UEFA Champions League season)
Name/Number: Ballack #13
This shirt remains in nothing short of excellent condition! Despite its age; the felt sponsor, felt Champions League crests on the arm, the Adidas embroidery, name and numbering, and club crest are truly immaculate. Furthermore, the vents on the side panel, and shirt material display very little wear.
Pit to Pit Measurement: 21 inches
Shirt Length: 30 inches
Made in the 2002-03 season Adidas ‘ClimaLite’ style, and although the label says USA: ‘XL’, the dimensions of this shirt lend themselves far more to a conventional size large fit.
While Bayern Munich’s 2002-03 domestic home shirt was a mirror of the 2001-02 iteration, just with the T-Mobile sponsor replacing Opel across the chest; a brand new strip was conceived by Adidas for Bayern’s European foray! Made in all red; just as their previous European attire was, however unlike the red ensemble that led ‘FC Hollywood’ to European glory in 2001, and to the semi final in 2002; this wonderful ensemble would be synonymous with Bayern’s disastrous group stage exit in the 2002-03 season. Thankfully, the shirt remains more memorable than that tournament exit, and is now a must have in any Bayern Munich fans repertoire of legendary ‘Die Rotten’ shirts!
The notable players that season were:
Piotr Trochowski, Roque Santa Cruz, Alexander Zickler, Claudio Pizarro, Giovane Elber, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Sebastian Deisler, Owen Hargreaves, Hasan Salihamidzic, Michael Tarnat, Thorsten Fink, Jens Jeremies, Michael Ballack, Ze Roberto, Niko Kovac, Mehmet Scholl, Pablo Thiam, Philipp Lahm, Thomas Linke, Robert Kovac, Samuel Kuffour, Bixente Lizarazu, Willy Sagnol, Oliver Khan
