Real Madrid Unveil New Red 3rd Kit made of Recycled Sea Plastic

The new 3rd kit will be worn against Roma on Tuesday

Real Madrid have unveiled their latest third kit which will be worn against Roma on Tuesday night. Adidas have kept with a similar theme in selecting “untraditional” colors for Madrid’s 3rd kit and have again opted for a red like the 3rd kit worn in the 2011-2012 season. The kit is produced completely from the Parley material which is made of plastic recovered from different bodies of water all across the planet.

Madrid are among many European clubs in support of the environment by wearing the Parley strip. Manchester United, Juventus, and Bayern Munich will all have third kits made out of the same Parley material. The new kit can already be found on Real Madrid’s official website where new UCL training gear and player customization is also available.

The red kits were a good omen for Madrid in 2011-2012 season as they won the league under Jose Mourinho with over 100 points. Julen Lopetegui and the boys will be hoping for similar results this season as they enter a post-Cristiano Ronaldo era.
