Black from head to toe, Atletico Madrid’s new away kit is lit by dazzling bright red detailing, the vivid shade representing Atletico’s brilliant resurgence in the past decade.
“The away kit is very exciting; it’s clean and sharp with the black, but then you get these bursts of red, which really catch the eye,” says midfielder Amanda Sampedro.
“The story behind it is our story, the club’s story, and we will work hard to bring even more success to our supporters.”
The shocks of red on the shirt come through in the club crest, Swoosh and sponsor’s logo, as well as red trim on the sleeves. A streak of red appears on the reverse of the collar, while a Spanish flag inside the shirt adds a dose of national pride. The same red detailing appears on the shorts and socks, which incorporate the word “Atletico” midway up the shin.
“Atletico have this really inspiring never-say-die attitude,” says Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director.
“They always fight back when faced with a challenge, and this kit pays tribute to the determination which has helped transform them into the elite club we see today.”
