Real Madrid Away Kit for Champions League (2011-2012)

Adidas surprised introducing this season the golden in the first kit jersey of Real Madrid and so will the away kit for the Champions League. The sports brand has come out of the range of colors has been used in recent years to design the equipments of Real Madrid and has used the 'Liverpool' red for the alternate dress the team will wear in Europe.

It seemed that the major innovations were in the home jersey. 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. Although in this case, the number and stretches, will back to white and not golden as in the home jersey. Also the socks will be white. 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.

However, it is not the first time that Real Madrid is dressed in red. The club did so in a European Cup match against Dynamo Kiev in 1973. The match, played in the town of Odessa, passed into history despite finishing with the initial score 0-0. It was thanks to the only player not dressed in red that day... goalkeeper, Garcia Remon. The spectacular performance of Garcia Remon in Ukrainian lands, earned him the nickname 'The Odessa Cat', which would retain throughout his career. Also two years ago, Real Madrid had used a uniform of this color, but with a much worse outcome because lost 1-0 on their visit to Cardiff.

Adidas had a plan against leaks to avoid that the shirt came out prematurely. The plan was as follows: each catalog delivered to stores was printed in a different reference number so that, in case of possible digital reproductions, can know the identity of the store. But even with those. Now need to know if the shirt gets the approval of the Real Madrid fans.
