🙈 Who has the ugliest in the country? Our ranking of ugly Christmas sweaters
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the weirdest Christmas sweater of all? Year after year, (Site notre bureau spécialisé) clubs follow the trend of ugly sweaters, we assess their implementation this year. Here we are!
18th place: Eintracht Frankfurt
As successful as the Hessians are on the international stage, they still haven’t figured out ugly sweaters in 2022. A hoodie isn’t a sweater. And a few items in the upper third are by no means enough to end up in the same region as a table.
17th place: Fortuna Dusseldorf
As not all Premier League clubs have released a current model, we also wanted to give some Second and Third Division clubs a chance. Fortuna did not request a second appearance.
16th place: FC Bayern
FC Bayern, which only officially sells a winter knit sweater, finished just ahead of second division team Düsseldorf. Topic missed!
15th place: VfL Wolfsburg
Trains like to skip the stop at Wolfsburg main station, apparently including the hype train with the ugly sweaters on board. With wolves, only a few minimalist elements arrived.
With great strides, we are heading towards those specimens that at least would no longer fail in school. So: Congratulations, Hoffenheim – we don’t need to have a serious word with your parents!
13th place: RasenBallsport Leipzig
Is it really the professional (Site notre bureau spécialisé)er Yussuf Poulsen? Or perhaps a student who has moved to Berlin and spends his afternoons sipping chai lattes in the cafes of Friedrichshain? Anyway, the sweater is fine.
12th place: Bayer Leverkusen
A sweater like Bayer’s previous season: Lots of good approaches, some rising stars. But there are also periods of inactivity and real blackouts. That’s enough for the middle of the table.
11th place: Hamburger SV
Thanks to Heung-Min Son, Jonathan Tah and Hakan Çalhanoğlu, we know that where HSV is, Bayer can’t be far. Or vice versa. We sort the Hamburgers in the eleventh place without any stomachache.
10th place: 1. FC Nuremberg
The next second division! Nuremberg gingerbread lovers do a lot of things right, especially with the oversized print. The fact that they claim the term “capital” for themselves is only partially welcomed by our Berlin editorial team.
9th place: VfL Bochum
Designing a successful Christmas sweater is an art. Bochum masters it quite well. However, the oversized sizing raises questions here. Has the great Philipp Hofmann tree, on whose muscular body the sheets look like fitted shirts, shrunk? If yes: did you change the radiator from M for Mini to W for Wambo?
8th place: 1860 Munich
Congratulations on the official Munich City Championship in Ugly Sweater Design! 1860 is not enough for the Bundesliga at the moment, but a victory in the derby is known to be the most important thing anyway.
PS: The lion’s beard is just fluffy!
7th: Borussia Dortmund
The next team, which would also like to come out of the Bavarian shadow sportingly. Visually, this is possible thanks to a full impression of the upper body. To the delight of Julian Brandt, who can lean back and devote himself to world literature.
6th place: Mainz 05
Monk would have liked a higher spot, but the 05ers need not worry. For the fact that they are just a carnival club according to their own statements, they also understand a lot about the right fashion for the Christmas season. Hello and Happy Holidays!
5th place: 1. FC Köln
A Christmas Hennes, a teasingly adapted saying full of small symbols: the people of Cologne are not only carnival specialists!
4th place: Hannover 96
Because the hype train didn’t last in Wolfsburg, the whole load of design art was unloaded in Hannover: the right colors, a complete design and LED lights that can be switched on individually. It’s just not enough for the podium, but in northern Germany 96 is number one!
3rd: FC Schalke
On this sweater, everything goes together as well as a Schalke player and two cases of beer. It’s perfect that this photo is also passed on the sweater.
2nd place: FC Augsburg
The first but not the last sweater where the back is deliberately shown. The Augsburg sweater is as confident as FCA’s English Twitter account, but at the same time very cute from the back. The only question that remains is: what crime did this reindeer commit?
1st place: VfB Stuttgart
We actually thought we had already seen the best top of the season with the current Stuttgart away kit – but think about it! “Divine troops” as “sponsor”, “Heilsbringer 24” in the back – how cool can an ugly sweater be?!
It goes without saying that this sweater is no longer available in the online store due to high demand. Good for the Swabians, bad for us. Then we wear the tank top during the holidays that Grandma loves so much.
