Not to be left behind the other Borussia quickly got in on the act, with Gladbach releasing their own (sort of) blackout kit the next season.
Debuted against Leipzig in October of 2020, the kit released to mark the sides 120th anniversary wasn’t exactly a full blackout kit. Sure, it had what by now was becoming all the hallmarks of one, black badge and sponsor in a glossy print, a vague nod to the past, etc. But they crucially spiced things up a bit by leaving in a white trim and anniversary marker to front.
While the concept was already growing a little stale (looking at you Liverpool), Gladbach managed to give it a new lease of life with their take and the overall result was great.
Shortly after the shirts first debuted against Leipzig a limited quantity were made available on the clubs shop at a healthy €120, though this did at least include free customisation. 1900 pieces were produced to reflect the year of the clubs foundation and each item was individually numbered.
