First Images Of 2020/2021 Athletic Shirt Leaked
The first images of the possible 2020/2021 Athletic shirt have finally been leaked. As is usually the case, Footy Headlines were the first to shares the pictures of what could very well be next season’s shirt.
Unlike the past two years which saw Athletic wearing thick red and white stripes, the leaked images show slightly thinner stripes, but not skinny. The red stripes also contain a subtle design of bars going from left to right which make them appear darker.
Keeping with recent tradition, the upper portion of the back of the shirt is solid red where player names and number will be placed. The shorts, normally black, and socks weren’t included in the images.
In many ways this is a “Classic” Athletic shirt. That being the case, it will be interesting to see the design of the away kits. New Balance got creative with this year’s dark green away shirts which are trimmed in gold and feature a motif of the Basque flag emanating from the crest. At first many fans weren’t happy with the shirt, but over time it seems as though most now like it.
New Balance signed a six-year contract with Athletic back in 2017 to become the club’s official kit supplier. This will be the American-based company’s fourth year designing kits for the club. At this point it’s unclear as to when Athletic will officially unveil the kits for next season, but an announcement may not be far away.
