New Jersey and Main Sponsor
Yesterday the Eagles presented the jerseys for the new season. While Eintracht will play at home in black and white the main sponsor has changed as well. Krombacher is back on the Eagle’s.
New Home Jersey – Black and White
For the first time in Bundesliga history Eintracht will play at home in black and white. SGE’s equipment supplier NIKE designed a striped home kit with several red elements. In addition to the red Eintracht emblem NIKE’s swoosh on the left side is held in red as well.
Management board member Axel Hellmann is happy about the new home kit: „In the 15 years, which I have been working at Eintracht Frankfurt, fans wished for a black and white home jersey. This season we make their wish come true. Eintracht’s equipment was always marked by simplicity and elegance. The new jersey's follow this path. I would like to convey my thanks to everyone at NIKE, who has been involved in the design and production process.“
The jersey combines cutting edge technology in sports equipment with a sustainable production process. The entire jersey is produced from recycled polyester. Using recycled polyester also increases the energy efficiency of the production by 30 percent.
Main Sponsor Krombacher
On the day of the jersey presentation Eintracht announced their new main sponsor for the coming 2016/2017 Bundesliga season as well. Krombacher is back on Eintracht’s jerseys after the 2012/2013 Bundesliga season, in which Eintracht qualified for the Europa League as Bundesliga newcomer. A good sign for the extended cooperation between Eintracht and Krombacher untill 30 June 2024.
Krombacher will be Eintracht’s main sponsor until the summer of 2017 and then support SGE as premium partner. Axel Hellmann emphasized the great cooperation between Eintrahcht and Krombacher since 2012. According to Hellmann the cooperation with Krombacher is not only important for next season, but als gives Eintracht security for the years to come.
