Club History

Club Atletico de Madrid was founded in 1903. According to FIFA, three Basque students were the founding members of this Madrid-based club. Their distinct red and white striped kit was thought to resemble bed mattresses during that time; consequently, the team was (and still is) also known as "Los Colchoneros," (the mattress makers).

In recent years, thanks to the stellar management of Diego Simeone, "Atleti" have drawn in a new global fan base. They won La Liga in style last season and were runners-up to their city rivals, Real Madrid, in the Champions League final.

This shirt is part of a wide variety of La Liga soccer jerseys at SoccerProThe Nike Atletico Madrid Home Jersey by SoccerPro. The classic red and white, or Rojiblanco colors, are featured in a new design by Nike. There is also the LFP (Liga Nacional de Fútbol Profesional) emblem on the right sleeve along with a "Campeon Del Mundo 1975" to recognize the club's Intercontinental Cup title.

Dri-FIT Material

This jersey is manufactured in Thailand and is made of 100% recycled polyester to provide a lightweight and comfortable fit. The Nike Dri-FIT technology allows increased air flow around your body and reduces sweat and moisture. The result is your own air conditioning system to keep you cool and performing at your best.
