In the summer of 1912, three local football clubs named Deutsche Flagge, Rhenania, and Britannia merged withBVB
. The clubs decided to stay committed to the name of Borussia Dortmund but went on with the lemon yellow color of Britannia kits.
Hence, BVB started to wear yellow and black 4 years after its foundation and has tried different designs and combinations of the same colors ever since.

The new deal is reportedly worth €30million per year. Johan Adamsson, head of sports marketing for team sports at Puma has stated that the brand is looking forward to finding itself as a “clear number three” after Adidas and Nike.
