We've delved into our SoccerBible Kit Vault once more to bring you the 2003/04 Real Madrid Home shirt. They're one of the most famous and long established football teams in the world and the Real Madrid shirt has been a symbol of success for over 100 years.
The Real Madrid kit has a rich history that reflects the growth of the club and the political changes within Spain. From the clubs foundation, all the way to Madrid becoming the most successful team in Spanish football, the Real Madrid shirt has become one of the most globally recognised football jerseys.
So many great players have worn the famous Real Madrid shirt. Beginning with Alfredo di Stefano and the incredibly successful fifties side that won five consecutive European Cups, Real Madrid shirts have always been synonymous with success.
In recent years, Madrid's success has become associated with high-profile glamor due to an array of star-studded Galacticos. Some of the biggest names in world football have worn the famous Madrid shirt. Ronaldo, Figo, Zidane, David Beckham were all testament to this, along with the new-era Galacticos that make up the Madrid side of today.
The 2003–04 season was Real Madrid C.F.'s 73rd season in La Liga. It was a disappointing season for Madrid, who finished in fourth place, 7 points behind champions Valencia. It also marked David Beckhams first season for the Spanish giants after one of the highest profile transfers that saw Madrid exchange £25m for the Manchester United winger.
The club has seen sweeping changes in its 107 year history but one thing that has remained constant throughout is the famous all white home shirt. Its simple white is an all time classic in sporting design and has lasted the test of time to remain one of the iconic football shirts.
The famous white of Los Blancos has become an iconic part of the history of Real Madrid. The all white strip is one of the clubs biggest associations, and has been an constant presence in Madrid's rise to one of the worlds iconic football teams.
Adidas have played a strong part in the history of Real Madrid's shirts. They designed the kit for the 1998/99 season, introducing yellow in '99 and grey in 2000 and '06. For the clubs centenary, adidas introduced a special spotless white in 2002.
