After a number of years with Umbro, Spanish La Liga stalwarts Athletic Club de Bilbao have launched their 2013/14 home and way kits from new technical sponsor Nike.
According to the Athletic Bilbao English language website: Athletic Club and Nike present the new kits with which the team will play as of next season, after the agreement reached by both parties so that all the Club’s categories will be sporting the Nike collections until the year 2017.
The “lions” will reveal the new kit on 5th of June in San Mamés. La Catedral, after 100 years of history, opens the way to a spectacular stadium to open to a new stage for Athletic Club.
The premier kit maintains its traditional red and white stripes, combined with the black shorts and socks.
This kit reflects tradition, simplicity and the character of a team faithful to its colours and design. The jersey adds a neck that stresses even more character to the traditional image of the team, one of the aspects that provide more strength to the players when they jump onto the pitch.
The second kit for the upcoming season will be characterized so much by the colour blue on the jerseys as in the shorts. It has a V-neck with a white border that combines with the white hemming of the sleeves. The shorts of the new second kit are blue, the same as the socks.
