The iconic white adidas shirt to be worn at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium by world-class adidas players such by Xabi Alonso, Alarvo Arbeloa and Karim Benzema features the ‘Fly Emirates’ logo for the very first time, adding to the special connection between UAE fans and their beloved club. The newly introduced kit follows a five year shirt sponsorship agreement between the UAE-based airline and one of the world’s most successful football clubs.
Amongst the very first to get his hands on the official home jersey in the UAE, was former Real Madrid hero, adidas ambassador and Dubai resident Michel Salgado. A member of the famous ‘Galáctico’ side with 371 appearances for Real and more than 50 appearances for the Spanish national team, the former right back was keen to show the latest kit to his young sons, Miguel (eight years old) and Alán (three years old) who accompanied him to the adidas store.
“I was with Real Madrid for 10 years, so it was a very important part of my life and one I enjoy sharing with my family. The club remains close to my heart. Everywhere I go in the UAE people ask me about Real which is great. There is so much love for the club and so many fans here. I share their passion for the club and I hope to see all the fans in the UAE proudly wearing the new adidas kit when the team play next season. The Salgado family are all in for Real.”
To design the home Real Madrid jersey presented, adidas wanted to go a step further in innovation and product design. The highlight details for the first time are in orange, completely new hue for the Club. It will be present on the side panels, collar and sleeves. And it's in these two pieces which also combines with a black lead, leading for the first time three colour elements in the design of the shirt: collar and cuffs in white, orange and grey.
Also struck by the front panel as a differential against previous collections, presents a pattern of horizontal block building, giving the shirt a different texture and very attractive depending on how the light given.
Finally, a high density prints with the words "REAL MADRID" crown on the back of the neck, showing the white club membership from all angles.
