Last season’s UEFA Champions League finalists and Spanish La Liga champions Atlético de Madrid unveiled their 20914/15 home kit from Nike on Monday. It will be available at World Soccer Shop, Kitbag, UK Soccer Shop and Subside Sports.
Los Colchoneros (The Mattress Makers) 14/15 home jersey is inspired by the shirt worn by the Atlético Madrid when they won their sole club world championship title – the 1974 Intercontinental Cup. The win is recognized via a printed pennant in the colors of the Spain national flag on the inside neck of the kit with the text “CAMPEON DEL MUNDO 1975” (World Champion 1975).
The 2014/15 Atlético de Madrid Nike home kit is in the club’s famous red and white stripes with three of the latter appearing on the front of the shirt. The back has a white box for player numbers. It features a blue polo collar and v-neck similar to produce a modern interpretation of the jersey worn by the likes of Luis Aragonés, Adelardo, Irureta, Gárate and Ayala in the mid-seventies. The new uniform is completed by blue shorts and red socks.
Nike has added what they call a “subtle modern flourish” by incorporating a tonal background chevron graphic on the front of the kit. The chevro matches the shape of the bottom of the Atlético Madrid crest.
