The 1973/74 season West German side dominated by Bayern players won the World Cup and confirmed their country as the major footballing power at thattime. The likes of Maier, Schwarzenbeck, Breitner, Hoeness, Muller and particularly Beckenbauer were now recognised as some of the best players in the world and they played for a team that, a decade earlier had not even been in their top national league. Bayern Munich had moved in a remarkably short period of time from being a minor German team to being the champions of Europe. Many of the bigger names around the continent looked on enviously, but with their team
dominated by world class players, Bayern looked set to rule over Europe for some time to come.
For previous season, these away Bayern kits were used as the third jersey for the team.
