Atlético de Madrid’s new ’90s-centric third kit takes the same light blue shade worn during the club’s fortifying decadal seasons, set to reappear when their European campaign begins later this month.
“Given the 1990s theme of the kit, light blue was the fitting choice,” said Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “I hope the fans enjoy its return this season.”
The jersey features the club’s nickname, “Atleti,” woven into the fabric in an electrifying all-over matte/shine jacquard. A squared-off collar tops up the retro aesthetic and stands out thanks to an elevated trim, while seven stars — borrowed from Madrid’s coat of arms — are printed across the neckline. The ’90s Nike Futura logo and club crest complement the jersey, while a dark blue trim on the collar and sleeves perfectly frames it. Light blue shorts and socks complete the kit, both also featuring the retro Nike logo.
“Everybody knows about the moments of success for our club during that era,” says midfielder Saúl Ñiguez. “The fans will enjoy this color being brought back. It’s nice to see how the design gives it that ’90s feel.”
