The only team other than FC Barcelona and Real Madrid to win the Spanish La Liga title since 2004, Club Atlético de Madrid have released their 2017/18 home and away kits by technical partner Nike. Both will be on sale in the coming weeks at World Soccer Shop, Subside Sports, UK Soccer Shop, Lovell Soccer and Kitbag.
The Atlético Madrid 2017/18 home kit is in their world famous red and white stripes. It is is given a modern touch this year via a series of thin diagonal stripes on its front.
They are meant to emulate bear (Atlético’s emblem animal) scratches. Dark blue side striping and collar trim add further detail to the v-neck shirt that slightly modifies Nike’s Vapor with Aeroswift design. Atletico Madrid’s 17/18 away jersey is golden yellow with navy blue accenting. It uses the same Nike design as the home shirt.
The Atlético Madrid 2017/18 Nike home and away kits were launched using the theme “Luchamos juntos” (We fight together) with midfielder Saúl Ñíguez acting as lead model for the release.
Atlético Madrid will debut their 2017/18 Nike away kit when they meet Toluca FC in the Mexican club’s centennial match on July 25th. The home shirt will see action against Napoli in the Audi Cup on August 1st.
