Athletic Club Release The New 2020/2021 Home Shirt
The new Athletic shirt for the upcoming season has finally dropped. After weeks of leaked images showing a classic looking Zurigorri shirt, the club unveiled the new kit on Wednesday morning.
Unlike the past two years which saw the Lions wearing thick stripes, the new shirt is a more traditional look with standard sized stripes along with black pants and socks. As usual, the back of the shirt sports a solid red area where white names and numbers will be located. The most important detail, however, is the unique design inside the red stripes which pays homage to the club’s Socios.
The iconic red stripes contain darker colored bars which represent the area of the Athletic museum where Socio names are listed on the wall. “Wearing this shirt will mean a lot to us, but also to our fans,” said captain Iker Muniain. “I like the unique details on the shirt because it includes tradition details that show that we’re a club that represents unity.”
Like the away shirt which was recently unveiled, Athletic’s theme with New Balance for the upcoming season is Born of the People. “Athletic has a special story to tell and we want to reflect this in a custom design,” added New Balance CEO of Football, Kenny McCallum. “These unique red and white stripes are a way of paying tribute to one of the very few clubs that is owned by its members.”
Athletic’s new shirts for the upcoming season, both home and away, are already available on the club’s official website.
