New look for Atletico Madrid


Written by Frederik Tobias Thorgny Hansen

Nike has just presented the brand new Atletico Madrid home and away shirt for the 2017/18 season, providing the Spanish club with a modern look. Especially the home kit features something completely different, twisting an iconic design in a very cool way!

With the passion of Diego Simeone, Atletico Madrid will try again, as they aim towards the La Liga title and finally taking the last step in the UEFA Champions League. A transfer ban made Atletico Madrid unable to register new players before 2018, but Los Colchoneros kept Antoine Griezmann despite several rumours, keeping the trophy dreams alive the coming season.

The new Atlético Madrid home shirt adds a bold twist to an iconic design, as it incorporates diagonal cutouts into the classic red and white stripes. The stripes are also present on the back of the jersey, while the rest of the shirt, like the sleeves, is solid red.

Nike combines the red and white Atletico shirt with navy applications, mirroring the shade of blue used in the new club logo. These include the Swoosh and the stripes down the sides and around the rear neck of the shirt. Another new detail on the Atlético Madrid home kit is the club's new logo, while the Spanish flag can be seen on the inside of the collar of the new Atlético Madrid home shirt.

The new Atletico Madrid 2017/18 away shirt is mainly yellow with navy applications, similar to the popular Atletico 2013/14 away kit. Just like on the home shirt, one of the most remarkable changes to previous kits is definitely the club's brand new logo, while the Spanish flag also is present on the inside of the neck.

Stay tuned for the 1st of August, where you can get the home and away Atletico Madrid shirts here on Unisport.
