Athletic Bilbao launch Neon Green Away kit for 2021-22 – SportsLogos.Net
La Liga side Athletic Bilbao are looking to light up the night away from home this coming season with their new away kit.
The kit is made by New Balance and was released on Friday, June 4. It features a brilliant “flash green” color, like the club website puts it on, with black accents on the collar and cuffs. The New Balance logo, sponsor logo and club crest all appear in monochrome black.
The kit is inspired by the San Mamés stadium in Bilbao, where the Lions play their home games. But the club website didn’t really explain what elements were inspired by the stadium.
“It’s very special to be able to wear a jersey that celebrates the history of San Mamés,” said forward Iñaki Williams. “It will make us play with even more heart. “
“San Mamés is an incredible source of inspiration for New Balance,” added Kenny McCallum, General Manager of New Balance Football. “We understand the importance of the stadium to Athletic fans and wanted to pay tribute to it through the unique new design of the away shirt.”
Like the Home Kit, the Away Kit features a graphic on the back collar combining the Ikurriña flag and club stripes. The Ikurriña is the official flag of the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country in Spain.
The shirt is matched with shorts and socks in the same color “green lightning” with black accents.
Athletic Bilbao also released a secondary goalkeeper kit on Friday. The base is “light cobalt” blue with “cool blue” speckles.
Athletics Bilbao released their home and main goalie kits Friday May 28. The kits highlight the links between the club and the Basque Country.
