The new Atlético de Madrid 2020-21 away kit comes in head-to-toe blue with bright red detailing, and is inspired by the city’s Fountain of Neptune, one of the most iconic monuments in the city center where Atleti fans gather to celebrate the team’s victories. The bright, colorful details include gradient striping — unique to Atlético’s new away — which is used to illuminate the collar, sides of the jersey and socks.

“This kit is really striking,” says midfielder Marcos Llorente. “The blue really grabs your attention and the red also jumps out. I like the subtle stripes and I think it will be very popular with the players and the supporters.”

The front of Atlético’s blue away is lit up by a red Nike Swoosh, club crest and sponsor’s logo. The gradient striping surrounds the crew-neck collar and runs down the sides of the torso.

Blue shorts and socks complete the full look, with gradient striping stretching up the leg from the ankle. Inside the shirt, an inner-pride feature depicts a trident in a further reference to Neptune and to Atleti’s strong bond with the statue.
