Spanish La Liga powerhouses Real Madrid turn back the clock with their new home kits for 2022-23, returning to purple trim on white shirts for the first time since 2016-17 as they celebrate the club’s 120th anniversary.
Real unveiled the shirts on their site Monday, which maintain the predominantly white look for which the club is famous. The only accents are the purple Adidas stripes on the shoulders and the purple and black trim on the white polo collar.
The front of the shirt, however, has an embossed pattern of vertical lines and club crests.
“The kit represents a tribute to the club’s history,” the announcement read. “It adopts a classic design with modern touches, in which the traditional white color is combined with purple details on the collar and the three Adidas stripes on the shoulders.”
Real’s 120th anniversary logo is printed inside the collar in purple, while sponsor logos appear in black. The names and numbers will be printed on the back in a modernized black stenciled font, evoking the fonts used by the club in the early 2000s.
The shorts that go with the jersey are white with purple Adidas stripes on each side. The socks are white with a purple and black stripe around the middle. “RMCF” is written across the front above the stripe in purple while a black Adidas logo appears below the back stripe.
Real Madrid also unveiled their home goalkeeper kit for 2022-23 on Monday. He uses Adidas Condivo 22 model, which features a tonal pattern of geometric shapes and solid panels on the sides and back half of the collar.
