Before I start on this brilliant shirt, I know what you’re thinking. Seattle Sounders, UNAM Pumas and now Borussia Dortmund – am I the biggest football hipster of all time? Yes, I probably am!

If you follow me on Twitter (and if you don’t, why don’t you?!) you’ll probably have seen me enquiring about Dortmund shirts recently. Again, they have very iconic kits and I’ve been after a BVB shirt for a while. Fortunately I walked into Sports Direct and they had some on the shelves in my size. They even undercharged me ¬£10, result!

When I first saw this kit revealed in the summer, I wasn’t a fan. It has definitely grown on me though and shows Puma really do know how to make an iconic kit even more striking without going too over the top and losing the identity.

If you’re a football fan, you’ll know all about BVB. They’re one of the most successful German clubs in history (despite their awful start to this campaign) having won¬†eight German championships, three DFB-Pokals, five DFL-Supercups, one UEFA Champions League, one UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, and one Intercontinental Cup. They also have the coolest man on the planet as their manager – the fantastic Jurgen Klopp.

Their Signal Iduna Park home is brilliant and always has a fantastic atmosphere created by the ‘Yellow Wall’. I’m definitely hoping to get to a Dortmund game one day because let’s face it, the Germans just do football better than us English.

Another club to hit the blog for the second time and let’s be honest, they completely deserve it. Much like the Sounders, UNAM Pumas have some of the most unique kits in world football which is why I couldn’t resist this one.

You can read more about the club and see my Pumas third shirt here. This was their awesome away shirt in the 2012-13 season and now I’m just a home shirt off completing the set! It’s just a shame they ditched Puma for Nike!

Seattle Sounders Third Shirt

No respected football shirt blog should be without a Seattle Sounders shirt. And only the best have two! I have already spoken about the awesomeness that is the Sounders so head on over to my other Seattle shirt to read more about them.

I believe this was their third kit in 2012 and it’s pretty damn awesome. The colour is described as “super cyan” – they even create their own colours! Just take a minute to appreciate the greatness.
