On Tuesday. Atlético Madrid presented their new kits for the 2012-2013 campaign.
It turns out our report from three weeks ago regarding the leaked designs was spot on.
A blue band around the sleeves has been added to the home shirt, while the away kit has horizontal dark grey and black stripes. The home shirt will feature a V-neck collar this year.
The away kit has Atleti-red printing and an extra band on the bottom of the shirt, as can be seen here.
If you’d like to parade in a brand new Falcao or Adrián shirt, then you better skip your summer holiday. Prices at the official Atlético store are €81 for the jersey plus another €17 to have the name and number of your favourite superstar printed on your back.
Perhaps prices are that high because of the lack of a sponsor. While the design certainly looks more beautiful and authentic without an extra logo up front, it does seem we will again go into the season without a shirt sponsorship deal.

UPDATE: You can now find High Definition pictures of the 2012-2013 Atlético Madrid kits on our Facebook page.
So what do you guys think of the new kits? Which jersey will you buy this year and will you get a player on the back?
