Commonly known as Atletico Madrid, Atlético de Madrid is one of the greatest clubs in the history of LaLiga.
Founded in 1903, the team has been one of the bests in the history of football in the world and is one of the most successful teams in Spain along with Barcelona and Real Madrid, especially during recent years. They have been playing in red and white stripes since 1911 and are known as Los Rojiblancos or The Red and Whites because of that.
One more thing the club is famous for is their stadium which is called Metropolitano and has a capacity of 68,456.
The combination of Red, white and blue has been used in the club’s kits since 1911, with red and white vertical striped shirts, blue shorts, and blue and red socks.
Let's take a quick look at the club and its 2020-21 kits
The club was founded on 26 April 1903 as Athletic Club Sucursal de Madrid by three Basque students living in Madrid. These founders saw the new club as a youth branch of their childhood team, Athletic Bilbao which wasn’t so successful and has won just the 1903 Copa del Rey Final in the city. In 1904, they were joined by dissident members of Real Madrid. The side began playing in blue and white halved shirts which were the colors of Athletic Bilbao at that time. However, later and by 1911 both the Bilbao and Madrid teams were playing in their current colors of red and white stripes.
The team’s first kid producer was a Spanish brand named Meyba, but later Puma became Atletico's kit maker in 1983, replacing them.
The first kit Puma designed for Atletico was classic, but then they continued to use more creativity, though the jerseys still featured the classic stripes of the club.
In 1998, Puma was replaced by Reebok, which was Atletico's kit supplier for three years from 1998 until 2001. However, finally, Nike took over in 2001.
In case you are interested in the team’s 2020-21 kit, you need to know that there are plausible rumors that Nike is going to design the new Atletico kit, inspired by previous Puma designs.
But what does the company have in mind for the next season? Let’s keep on and find out the answer.
Let’s take a look at the leaked news.
According to Footyheadlines, Nike has designed Atlético's home kit using the team’s three colors combination. The jersey includes red and white vertical striped shirts, with blue shorts, and blue and red socks.
It has been said that the new kit is set to be released in May or June 2020.
The team’s first kit last year jersey had a very regular design, but now the rumor of something new is being heard: brushstroke stripes.
Apparently, there are five red and four white stripes on the front of Atletico’s home shirt, with the latter being narrower than before. In the case of sleeves, the rumors are different, as some sources say the stripes continue onto the sleeves, while some say they are covered in red. The back is also predominantly red.
A dark blue classic collar is used on the Atletico Madrid 20-21 home kit, matching the color of the sleeve cuffs and the Nike logo.
One more interesting thing to mention about Atletico Madrid 2020-2021 home kit is that apparently, it is inspired by Puma’s 1997-98 away jersey.
Back in 1997-98, Los Rojiblancos away jersey was a mainly navy shirt with red and white striped stripes on the front. However, that’s not all as the team’s 20-21 home uniform has a similar effect as the previous ones.
It has been reported that Atletico Madrid’s 2020-21 away kits are going to be designed mostly in blue, combined with red, according to Footyheadlines.
To be specific, the colors are 'Coastal blue' which is a dark shade of blue and 'sport red' which is the same color used on Atletico home shirts.
It has also been said that the away jersey has a halftone gradient pattern.
The Atletico 2020-21 away shorts are blue.
While Atletico Madrid’s first and second kit are set to be launched in May/June, the team’s third kit will be released later and in September, according to the reports.
Los Colchoneros’ third kit will be in volt color, while black is used for the logos and accents, according to Footyheadline. There is also a subtle marble graphic pattern on the jersey.
Coming close to the end, it is time to talk about Atletico Madrid’s training kit, which is set to be released in July 2020.
According to the reports, the Nike Atlético Madrid 2020-21 training shirt is predominantly olive while it is also combined with a lighter shade of brown which is used in the logos as well as the sleeve stripes.
