Real Madrid green jersey for Champions League (2012-13)

Adidas will surprise (again) introducing this season the green color in the away kit jersey of Real Madrid for the Champions League tournament. The sports brand has usually used the blue or black colors, but last year already used the red to design the away equipments of Real Madrid for the alternate dress the team wore in Europe.

For next season, it seemed that the major innovations were in the away jersey for the Spanish competitions (electric yellow). However, Adidas has wanted to change the image of Real Madrid in Europe and has avoided the black, blue and purple to opt for a striking color: green. Although, the numbers and stretches will back to white. Also the socks will be green. Another important thing is that this away kit for Champions League will also be used by the team in the Spanish League as third kit.

Adidas has already confirmed that the red, which was so successful last season and was shown especially in the Champions League, would no longer manufacture. The German sports brand, looking for another blow, thought that green would be an amazing color. A rumor that sounds increasingly harder and that seems confirmed with this leak, in which the Champions League symbol appears in a sleeve.

However, it is not the first time that Real Madrid is dressed in green. Real Madrid dressed in this color in 1965 in a friendly against River Plate in Caracas. The only precedent (as recorded in some press at the time) was during a summer tour. They had to order the shirts borrowed to play against River because the team did not travel with the away kit. It was a 1-1 (Agüero and Luis Cubilla).
