Adidas have officially launched Real Madrid’s home and away kits for the 2020/21 season.

Ever since the La Liga season ended, Real Madrid fans have been waiting for the club and/or Adidas to announce the kits for the new season.

While almost every other club in Europe launched their kits, Madridistas had to keep waiting.

Well, the wait is finally over as Adidas has officially announced the kits via Twitter. Here’s the tweet with the accompanying launch video.

Adidas have decided to go with pink strips and navy blue font to accompany the iconic white of Madrid for the home kit. The home kit features a V-neck collar and is a simple, plain and, clean design.

Adidas released this statement on their website:

"“Inspired by the Madrid mentality of facing pressure with fearlessness and defiance, Adidas has taken the iconic white of Real Madrid and introduced a subtle tonal graphic across the front of the home shirt, whilst the away jersey includes a striking new colorway. Both designs are kept minimal in their aesthetic to not distract from the club’s uncompromising mission of achieving glory in every game they play,”"

The away kit features the same pink as it’s primary color. The navy blue font and the V-neck collar makes a return on this one too.

Real Madrid will start using the new kits immediately with latest appearance set to be away at Manchester City in the Champions League Round of 16. The new kits will also be used by the new women’s team for their very first season as Real Madrid Femenino.

The new kits don’t look really good especially compared to the ones Madrid had last season. The new ones are a huge downgrade from the last year’s kits and don’t compare well to kits from other teams either, especially compared to the new kits of our direct rivals FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
