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.
Atleti will break with the past and will not hold a ceremony presenting the new shirts, which the players will wear in Mexico next week. https://t.co/1pJZXe7w3A— Into the Calderón (@intothecalderon) July 17, 2017
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.
However, one thing I think every supporter can agree on is that Atlético should not wear this:
That kit is white.
What do you think of Atlético’s new shirts?
