The 2019-20 Wolfsburg Diversity shirt sees the current away jersey featuring a rainbow Volkswagen logo in the centre whilst rainbow ‘#Vielfalt’ (Diversity) lettering will appear on the top of the back beneath the green and white strip on the back of the neck.

Black shorts and socks complete the 2019-20 Vfl Wolfsburg diversity kit that will debut in this weekend’s Bundesliga fixture against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday 30th May.

Originally the club wanted to debut the special kit during Diversity Week in March but had to reschedule due to fixtures being cancelled because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

VfL Managing Director Michael Meeske said, “The rainbow captain’s armband for all our teams and together with our partner clubs will be our way of showing the values that VfL stands for. And thanks to Volkswagen, we can wear these values proudly on our chests this season out on the field.”

One of our seven corporate principles is: ‘We embody diversity!’ and we need to make sure that these are not just words, but that we live it every day,“ said Elke Heitmüller the Head of Diversity Management at Volkswagen. Referring to the Instagram advertisement that had met with criticism in recent weeks, she also said: “This ad does not reflect how Volkswagen is. We are a colourful and diverse company which accepts people for who they are, irrespective of nationality, skin colour, sex, age, religion or sexual orientation. This is why it is so important for us to demonstrate these principles together with VfL.“
