FC Köln's Karneval Kit

Not to be outdone by 1860 Munich and their unique Oktoberfest kit, FC Köln have raised or perhaps lowered the bar when it comes to novelty kits.

Complete with fake tassels, a cummerbund, and a decorative collar, this red limited strip is ghastly it will almost certainly become a collectors item. Because... Well... Collectors are odd like that.

The kit is being released to coincide with the city's annual Karneval events.

Karneval is an annual celebration that kicks off on the 11th minute, of the 11th hour, of the 11th of November to celebrate the "fifth season" and runs in earnest up until the new year.

The celebration includes parades, music, lots of food and fancy dress parties.
Cologne's kits are in homage to the city’s Roten Funken (Red Sparks) guards, one of the traditional groups to participate in the Karneval.

If you want to get your hands on one of these little beauties, the kit is currently available for €89.95 on FC Köln's website.
