Hannover 96, the German club founded in 1896 and currently playing in the 2.Fußball-Bundesliga, and Macron, technical sponsor of ‘Die Roten’, have presented the new uniforms that the team will wear during the 2021-2022 season. This year’s jerseys combine the team’s colours and symbols with a message of sustainability and environmental protection, thanks to the Eco Softlock fabric (100% polyester made from recycled plastic) used by the Italian brand.
The “Home” version, with a round neck, is in the classic red that distinguishes the club. White details are present around the collar and sleeve edges. The backneck presents the club colours, the team logo and the motto NIEMALS ALLEIN! (Never alone!) also featured on the outside. The detail that sets the jersey apart is the all-over embossed graphic with the club logo repeated in diagonal lines. On the bottom of the jersey is a customised tape with the words, YES TO FOOTBALL, NO TO RACISM. On the right chest, the Macron Hero in white, while on the left the Hannover 96 crest.
The away shirt is total black with a polo neck and green stripes. The backneck is personalised like the Home version. The “Away” version shows a large, embossed 96 in the centre of concentric lines. On the bottom of the jersey, there is a personalised tape with the words against racism. This match kit is completed by black shorts with white drawstrings and black socks with two horizontal green stripes in the middle.
As for the crew-neck “Third”, the central body is white with a vertical stripe, tone on tone, in embossed graphics. The sleeves have a geometric drawing in sublimation print, with black and green figures. The backneck is personalised as in the two previous versions.
