Nike and Atletico Madrid jointly unveiled the 2015-16 away football shirt. The navy blue away shirt reminds people of the great victories of the past.
In the 1995-96 season, Atletico Madrid simultaneously won La Liga and Copa del Rey with the aid of Diego Simeone who is the current head coach of the club. He can represent Atletico Madrid. As a preeminent coach, he has got a few individual awards, including Miguel Muñoz Trophy in 2013-14 and 2015-16 seasons, IFFHS World’s Best Club Coach in 2016 and European Coach of the Season in the 2011-12 season.
The 1995-96 shirt was popular among fans at that time, so designers got inspiration from it and gave a modern and stylish away shirt in order to encourage players to fight for more trophies.
The 2015-16 away shirt features a Polo collar with red decoration. A small Spain national flag is printed inside of the collar with the number “1995-96” and “2015-2016”. White Nike Swoosh and sponsor’s name are shown on the front of the shirt. Indispensable club crest is certainly printed on the chest.
The shorts and socks are all navy blue. There is a red stripe put on both sides of the shirt and the shorts to keep players cool and dry when they are running at football pitches.
Nike Dri-FIT technology absorbs sweat from skin quickly to keep athletes comfortable and perform well. Besides, mesh fabric can control body temperature and make them focus on games.
The material recycled polyester not only makes sure of the high-performance of the shirt but also reduces the impact on environment.
