The new Real Madrid away kit for 2022/23 has been leaked online – and there has been a mixed response from fans so far.
Los Blancos, of course, always play their home games in white. However, they have used various designs and colour schemes in previous seasons for their away kits.
Real played in an eye-catching black and gold number at the beginning of the new millennium. It resulted in some notable success. Vicente del Bosque guided his side to Champions League glory in 2000. They then won the La Liga title the following season.
Real experimented with different colour variations over the next few years, but the primary colour of black always remained.
That was until 2004/05, when the club opted for a navy away shirt. The shirt didn’t bring much success, with Real enduring one of the worst seasons in their recent history. They went through three managers and failed to win a single trophy.
In 2008/09, they transitioned into more of a blue colour. The black and blue rotations would then persist until 2014, when Real went for an entirely different primary colour of pink.
Currently, Carlo Ancelotti‘s team primarily play their away games using their blue and orange secondary kit. Fans have been generally very positive about the kit.
For 2022/23, however, it appears the club has gone down an entirely new direction – but fans have given mixed responses.
Real Madrid 2022/23 away kit leaked
Real Madrid look like they will play their away games wearing a light purple away kit, as originally leaked by Footy Headlines.
The diagonal tiles featured on the shirt are different shades of purple to add a more modern effect. Meanwhile, the old primary colour of black is featured on the shirt, around the collar and sleeve cuffs.
The shirt is kitted out with the club’s main shirt sponsor, Emirates – under the Fly Emirates banner – with the adidas logo also featured in the top left. Both of those symbols are marked in black.
In addition, there are also two black lines on either side of the shirt, which travel from the collar to the top of the sleeves.
Since appearing online, the kit has already received plenty of positive reviews from both Real Madrid fans and football fans worldwide:
Other fans, however, weren’t so keen.
Whatever the opinions of the kit itself, Real Madrid fans will be hoping the team achieves plenty of success whilst wearing it – if indeed it is confirmed by the club as the official design.
