Atlético Madrid have this morning unveiled the shirt that the team will wear for the upcoming season, with a new shirt sponsor to match.
Plus500, a multinational company that specialises in the online trading of CFDs, become the new main sponsor on the front of the Atleti shirt, replacing the partnership with Azerbaijan that had caused a lot of controversy in recent years.
The shirt is a tribute to the 95-96 double winning side, as the start of the season marks 20 years since the ‘Doblete’.
The home jersey features five red stripes on white, just like the one 20 years ago, with a blue stripe outline reaching down to the shorts.
For the first time in the history of Atlético, the back of the shirt will be completely red. On the last few shirts, a red square has been present, in order for the numbers to be visible for European competition.
The shirt goes on sale at the Vicente Calderón club shop this evening at midnight.
I wonder if we’ll be able to get either Vietto or Jackson on the back of our new jersey any time soon.
