Atletico Madrid have officially launched their “historic” new badge, amidst a leak of their kits for next season.

The new shield – a modernised and more rounded take on their previous – accompanies Atleti’s move to a new stadium, Wanda Metropolitano.

Their 2017-18 home shirt also appears to sport diagonal white lines over their usual red stripes, with its away counterpart being all-yellow.

“Today marks the start of a historic season,” began an article posted on Atleti’s official website.

“More than 100,000 members and 50,000 season-ticket holders have joined the club for the opening year of Wanda Metropolitano, the new home of all atleticos.

“Although there are still a few more weeks until the start of the League campaign, the fans’ support is breaking all records, showing the sense of union between the squad and the fans.


“Together we have managed to place the club among the European elite. Atleticos from all over the world are proud of a team that are ranked fourth in the UEFA ranking after qualifying for the Champions League for the fifth consecutive year, a historic milestone for the club.

“From September, the Rojiblancos fans will enjoy a sports facility that meets the highest standards in terms of safety, visibility and comfort, designed to befit the best fans in the world.

“The new badge, which was announced last December, will help to reinforce the steps that have been taken institutionally and sportingly in recent years.
