Real Madrid's new jersey, a long line of purple classics

Real Madrid have unveiled their away jersey for the 2022/23 season replacing it with their classic colors.


Madrid may be nicknamed Los Blancos but they have a strong affinity with purple in their kits. Think of it, Fiorentina is arguably the only club to be more color-conscious than Real Madrid. That's because I Viola use this unique color in their home kits.


But other than Fiorentina purple was a rarely used color in football. That is until Real adopted it as one of their unofficial colors.

The latest effort is a distinctive light purple the same color that was used for the trim on Real Madrid's new home kit. On the away kit, however, the cool diagonal geometry gives it a two-tone effect. Light purple is also the predominant color on the shorts and socks too. However, unlike the shirts they are one color and have no graphic shapes.
