The players wear a bright kit for the home games and a multi colored red and black with predominantly white color for the away games.

FC Koln football club has recently been a yo-yo club because of a regular relegations into the German 2nd division although it is known to have played most of their football in the Bundesliga. They were relegated for the first time back in 1998 and previously were one of the most stable clubs in the west side of Germany by winning most points.

The club did not have a great season thus far but with a new manager in the ranks and the fans backing up the players, everyone is hopeful that FC Koln would again become a dominant name in German football in the coming years.
