German club’s Oktoberfest kit is simultaneously the best and worst thing in football

Tom Victor

It’s starting to look as though Michael Kokocinski’s comedy own goal isn’t the worst thing someone at 1860 Munich has done this week.

We’ve spent our morning trying to work out if it’s glorious or hideous, and have switched between the two on an hourly basis.

Football and Oktoberfest go hand in hand, with 1860’s neighbours Bayern Munich making their seasonal team photo an annual tradition.

It’s not just German players who get involved.

And not even Bundesliga players.

We’ll raise a stein to that.
