Real Madrid unveil new kit

Real Madrid and sponsors adidas have released a new home and an away kit that the La Liga champions will wear for the 2017/18 campaign.

The club unveiled their new home kit via their various social media feeds, which includes a unique new blue strip, while their new away kit sees the 12-time Champions League winners return to their black trim.

‘On the home shirt, the white colour is combined with a light blue, but will be even whiter due to the three adidas stripes only running along the shoulders,’ a statement on the club’s website read.

‘The colour of these stripes and the sponsor logo is a blue inspired by the sky in the city of Madrid. As well as this, at the bottom of the shirt there is a small embossed stamp with the years 1902-2017, as a nod to the club’s 115-year history.

‘The second kit returns to black, a colour that has been taken on by the fans and with which Real Madrid has already experienced historic moments, such as the winning of the eighth European Cup in 2000.

‘The stripes and adidas badge vary in tone. This kit uses a turquoise green, which stands out on top of the black, standing out almost like neon,’ the statement said.
