adidas Launch Real Madrid 20/21 Home & Away Shirts

Revealing two bold yet simple designs which were created to highlight what makes the club unique, adidas have launched the Real Madrid 20/21 home and away shirts.

As one of the greatest teams of all time, Real Madrid expect the best in all aspects, from their play on the pitch to how they look and operate. Inspired by the Madrid mentality of facing pressure with fearlessness and defiance, adidas has taken the iconic white of Los Blancos and introduced a subtle tonal graphic across the front of the 20/21 home shirt. The away shirt on the other hand, includes a striking new colourway that is hinted at on the stripes of the home design.

The home shirt features Spring Pink accents – inspired by the 2014/15 away shirt – emerging from the 3 stripes and loop label on the neck, and this subtle graphic and vivid contrast detailing references the contemporary art culture of the vibrant Spanish capital.

The away shirt includes dark blue accents against a fresh Spring Pink colour, inspired by a city lit at night, when Plaza De Cibeles, an icon of the city is at its most beautiful.

Real Madrid is a unique team with a unique history. We wanted to keep the design of this season’s jerseys bold yet simple to reflect the expectation that comes with the badge, and that is to win at all costs," explained Marco Ommicioli, Football Designer at adidas. "The shirts may only be 140 grams of fabric, but the weight of expectation is much heavier. The pressure to perform, pressure to win, and the pressure to create history in front fans. This pressure turns good players into great ones, and great ones into global icons, just like the design of these famous shirts.
