The Red and White of Madrid, Atletico Madrid, take center stage with a pair of new jerseys from Nike.
In recent memory, their matches with the other titans in Spain’s La Liga have been nothing but instant classics. Real Madrid and FC Barcelona see Atleti as more than just a credible threat when it comes to titles within Spain or even Europe. The club are set to move to a new stadium next season, but will carry the memories of their old home, some with their El Clasico foes, onto these new jerseys.
Atletico will be moving on from the Vincente Calderon at the end of the 2016/17 season. But, their home jersey, based off the 1966/67 season, works as a very classy strip. Three broad red stripes against a white background are met with solid red sleeves, and blue trim on the collar. The Nike swoosh on the chest is blue with a white outline, to stand out more.
A bold blue stripe occupies both flanks on the sides. The stripe continues into the shorts.
Solid blue shorts and socks with tonal red striped design at the back take up the legs, completing this home kit.
Atletico’s away jersey this season is a fetching black number with blue, navy and yellow details. The modern collar has a blue trim, with a Spanish flag and Atletico wordmark on the back on the collar. The Nike swoosh here is yellow, with the club’s badge appearing in a spot-colored blue and yellow across from the swoosh.
The side-piping stripe has a very illuminating color pattern, with a navy stripe accompanied by yellow flashes.
The complete away kit has black shorts with the vibrant navy and yellow trim on the sides, and yellow socks with black tonal stripes on the calves. Plus500 is the shirt sponsor
The 2016/17 Atletico Madrid home and away jerseys will be available soon at World Soccer Shop.
