OFFICIAL: Atlético unveil new kits for 2017-18

After months of speculation, Atleti have finally confirmed the new look.

The 2017/18 Liga Santander fixtures were announced today, which gave Atlético Madrid a chance to end the inexplicable longer-than-usual delay behind the unveiling of their new kits. And once again, FootyHeadlines was spot-on.

The rumored navy-and-pink third kit was not unveiled on Friday, but it is not unusual for clubs to reveal a third strip at a later date.

The kits have been available outside of Spain for nearly a week and it was previously announced that Atlético would reveal the new kits through social media and the club website only.

Opinion of the new kits - particularly the home strip - has been sharply divided. Some supporters have embraced the slashed red and white design, but others have openly rejected it, claiming it is too big a break from the past. Whichever side you’re on, though, it can’t be argued that Atlético have made a lot of changes in a very short period of time. The shirts are just the latest alteration to Atleti’s image, which also include the new club crest, the new stadium and even a reimagined Indi.

Antoine Griezmann models Atlético’s home kit.
Filipe Luís models Atlético’s away kit.
NONE SHALL PASS (it’s Jan Oblak in the goalkeeper’s kit).

However, one thing I think every supporter can agree on is that Atlético should not wear this:

Axel Werner wearing...white.

That kit is white.

WHITE.

IT’S WHITE!!!!
