Last week, Mundo Deportivo reported that Atletico’s 2011/12 kit would be formally presented on the 21st of June.
Obviously, that was not the case, and rumours in Spain hinted that the presentation date had been pushed back to early next week.
The design pictured right was found in the Señales de Humo forum, and seems to fit the description given by Atleti officials last week claiming the new model would honour the club’s history.
In fact, the collar reads ‘100 Years of Rojiblanco Pride’, as 2011 marked the 100th anniversary since the club began wearing the traditional red and white colours.
This version is a far cry from the model MARCA had claimed would be our next jersey.
To date, Atleti has not secured a kit sponsor for next season after KIA cut ties with us this year.
Cheers to @fjmembrilla for the tip.
So, do you like it?
