Oktoberfest, the world’s largest Volksfest, is an annual Bavarian holiday, held in Germany, honouring of the wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen in October 1810.
Oktoberfest 2020 would have taken place from September 19 to October 4 but was cancelled for COVID-19 safety precautions.
As a celebration of their Bavarian roots, it is an annual tradition for FC Bayern Munich to bring their full squad to a local brewery to celebrate and enjoy a liter of beer. Players on the squad from all different backgrounds embrace the tradition and dress in local Bavarian clothing known as lederhosen.
The “Oktoberfest” mashup shirt design (by Participation Trophy Studio) is inspired by this traditional Bavarian attire and features seven different upcycled Bayern Munich jerseys (ranging from 2008-2019) to create a handmade 1 of 1 piece.
