Atletico Madrid offer four new jerseys to commemorate 75 years with current name – SportsLogos.Net
As the 2021-22 La Liga season approaches, Atletico Madrid and Nike are offering four new shirts to commemorate 75 years of their current name.
According to the club website, it was January 1, 1947, when Club Atlético-Aviación changed its name to Club Atlético de Madrid. Under this nickname, the club have won the La Liga title nine times, the Copa del Rey 10 times and the UEFA Europa League three times.
The home kit retains the club’s traditional red and white stripes, although in the 2021-22 version they are wider and feature brush effects. With a red bar to welcome the shirt sponsor, the club note that “the front of the shirt also features a huge letter A created by the central red stripes, which is another homage to Atlético de Madrid”.
The home shirt features a Spanish flag on the back collar and will be worn with royal blue shorts and socks.
The away jersey is predominantly navy blue, with a pinkish red graphic in the lower left corner. These colors recall the away kit worn by Atletico Madrid 1995-96, who won the club’s first “double” – the La Liga and Copa del Rey championships in the same season. It will be worn with pink red shorts and pink red socks edged in navy blue.
Atletico’s third kit pays tribute to the Estadio Vicente Calderón, where the club played their home games from 1966 to 2017, before moving to the Metropolitano stadium. The shirt, shorts and socks are all light blue, with white and red stripes and plaid trims. This diagram mimics the seat colors of the Vicente Calderón. There is also a graphic depicting the stadium inside the collar.
And for good measure, Atletico have launched a fourth kit into the mix. The shirt is solid red, as are the shorts and socks. The shirt is inspired by two events in the club’s history: the first leg of the 1974 European Cup semi-final against Celtic FC and the 1985 Copa del Rey final, in which they played. defeated Athletic Bilbao 2-1. The jersey features the club crest worn at that time, as well as a special 75th anniversary logo.
