Reigning UEFA Europa League Champions Atlético de Madrid have revealed their 2018/19 Nike away kit. It will be on sale at World Soccer Shop, Subside Sports, UK Soccer Shop, Pro:Direct Soccer, Lovell Soccer and Kitbag along with the club’s new home jersey.
According to Nike: Blue is a color long associated with Atlético de Madrid. In fact, it has been for 115 years. Before the now famous red and white stripes that adorn the club’s home shirts were adopted, blue was already a starring color in the club’s kits and it has regularly featured on away kits.
For the 2018/19 season, this history is expressed by a vivid two-tone design sure to turn heads when Atlético hit the road this season and reflective of the club’s contemporary standing.
“Atlético moved to a new stadium last year, continue to challenge for major honors each and every season and they have a world class roster of players. It was only right that we produced a kit which captures all of this positive energy,” says Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director.
Flashes of orange, used for head-to-toe detailing like crests, numbers and swooshes, add energy to the strip. This bright color was selected to represent the youthful exuberance of Atlético’s dynamic squad and the positive energy they bring to the team.
The current club of 2018 FIFA World Cup winners Antoine Griezmann, Lucas Hernández and Thomas Lemar, Atlético Madrid kickoff their pre-season with a meeting against Arsenal FC on July 26th.
