A shirt dedicated to the sweetest tradition from Nuremberg, the Gingerbread. 1. FC Nurnber revealed their new 2020/21 limited edition Christmas shirt.
The city is known worldwide for its Christmas market and seasonal treats such as Lebkuchen, a type of gingerbread biscuit with a very specific pattern of almonds on the top.
This is where Umbro got their inspiration for the 2020/21 shirt from. It features a Lebkuchen graphic in the traditional club colours red and black.
This is a limited-edition for the keen kit collector – only 2500 pieces have been produced with each shirt featuring its own unique number on the front of the shirt, just below the main sponsor Nürnberger.
Other details include a medieval-inspired typeface surrounding the crest and further Lebkuchen features below the backneck together with the text “Metropolis of Gingerbread since 1395” (when this delicacy is said to have been baked for the first time). The shirt also comes with its own gift box.
On 13th December, the 1. FC Nurnberg players will proudly wear this limited-edition kit in their home game against Würzburger.
