History of the the red home kit
Today when we think of the FC Bayern strip, red is the primary colour that springs to mind for most football fans. Since the 1960’s the main colour of the home shirt has been red, however the original colour scheme was very different. When the club was founded in 1900 the clubs official colour scheme was recorded as white and blue. Below is a brief rundown of the colours worn and between what time-periods:
- 1900-1905 – white and blue
- 1905-1968 – white shirts with red shorts
- 1968-1969 – red & blue stripe jersey, blue shorts and socks
- 1969-1973 – red and white stripe shirt
- 1973-1974 – all-white strip with single red and blue vertical stripe
- 1974-1995 – red shirt, shorts and socks with white trim
- 1995-1997 – red and blue stripe jersey
- 1997-1999 – blue home kit with red hoop on the shirt
- 1999-2003 – red jersey with navy blue sleeves
- 2002-2014 – red shirt with white details, including several red & white stripe jerseys
- 2014-2015 – red and blue vertical stripe design

As can be seen there has been a lot of variability in the styling of the home strip, meaning that the launch of a new strip is met with excitement and anticipation from fans.

FC Bayern Home Football Stadium
The iconic home of every football club is their stadium. Since 2005 Bayern have hosted home matches at the Allianz Arena, which is a purpose-built football ground with a maximum capacity of 75,000 supporters. On match days kit clad supporters line the streets and stands cheering on Der FCB. After its initial construction the Allianz Arena had a capacity of 66,000 seated spectators, however, due to ever increasing demand the site has undergone several renovations adding the additional capacity that is available today.
The stand-out talking point of the Allianz Arena is the translucent outer layer that can be lit in different colours. Of course, for fixtures the entire arena is lit in red to reflect the colour scheme of the club’s home football kit. On occasion when the German national team play at the venue the stadium is illuminated in white light.
Prior to moving into the Allianz Arena Bayern has had a variety of other home grounds, we list these below alongside the time-frame that they resided there.
- 1900-1901 – Theresienwiese (an open space in central Munich)
- 1901-1906 – A field in Schwabing
- 1907-1924 – MSC’s ground at Leopoldstraße
- 1925-1971 – Grünwalder Stadion
- 1972-2005 – Olympiastadion
- 2005-Present – Allianz Arena
