Athletic Bilbao, one of the traditional powers of Spanish football, have launched their latest home jersey for the 2016/17 La Liga season. The Lions from the Basque country, known for their red and white striped shirts, have Nike as their supplier for this latest jersey entry.
The jersey has a simple v-neck collar, with the familiar red and white stripes running through the shirt and sleeves.
Athletic’s badge, placed on the left side of the chest, has a golden outline.
The Nike swoosh is placed on the other side, and is in black with a white outline, to stand out more.
The back of the shirt has the flag of the Basque region on the collar. The stripes also connect here, as the back area below will be a solid red.
The shorts are black with red trim on the sides.
Completing the kit, the socks are a solid black, save for a white Nike swoosh with Athletic wordmark placed under it. Kutxabank returns for a second season as shirt sponsor.
The Athletic Club Bilbao 2016/17 home jersey will be available soon at World Soccer Shop.
