The 90s revolution continues as Nike drop Atletico Madrid’s new light blue third jersey – the latest in an impressive line of retro-inspired Futura logo alternate shirts.

The new jersey adopts the same light blue shade worn during the club’s fortifying decadal seasons and it is set to reappear when their European campaign begins later this month.

“Given the 1990s theme of the kit, light blue was the fitting choice,” said Pete Hoppins, Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director. “I hope the fans enjoy its return this season.”

The jersey features the club’s nickname, “Atleti,” woven into the fabric in an electrifying all-over matte/shine jacquard while a squared-off collar tops up the retro aesthetic and stands out thanks to an elevated trim, while seven stars — borrowed from Madrid’s coat of arms — are printed across the neckline.

The ’90s Nike Futura logo and club crest complement the jersey, while a dark blue trim on the collar and sleeves perfectly frames it. Light blue shorts and socks complete the kit, both also featuring the retro Nike logo.

“Everybody knows about the moments of success for our club during that era,” says midfielder Saúl Ñiguez. “The fans will enjoy this color being brought back. It’s nice to see how the design gives it that ’90s feel.”

The new Atletico Madrid third jersey is available from today, 13th September, via Nike Football.
