Real Madrid have finally revealed their innovative and history-inspired third kit ahead of the 2020/21 campaign, unveiling a sophisticated black and pink jersey with a Baroque design.

Los Merengues have already released images of their home and away kit for the coming season, the former sporting a pink stripe down the sides of the jersey, while the latter is an entirely pink number.

This theme has been continued into their third strip then, after Madrid and adidas finally launched their new kit on Wednesday morning, encouraging supporters to 'make history' with the Spanish champions.

The jersey is a celebration of the city of Madrid, its class and its history. The black and grey Baroque-style patterns pay homage to the Azulejo tile art paintings which decorate Madrid, and they aim to mirror the club's incomparable success both on and off the field in its fashion sense.

Now let's go into the finer details of the shirt...

The entire jersey is designed to capture the roots and authenticity of the city. The V-neck jersey is dotted with spring pink patterns on the club emblem, and their two sponsors' logos, adidas and Emirates.

That pink vibe continues down the sides of the jersey too, with the three adidas stripes sporting the same striking colour on the sleeves and sides, contrasting wonderfully with the black and grey background.

For the players, they needn't worry about overheating in this new jersey, either. It boasts adidas’ temperature regulation innovations with the inclusion of 'HEAT.RDY – KEEP COOL,' which will allow the Madrid stars to remain cool and dry on the pitch.

And for those supporters who decide to buy this shirt and don it at the stadium, or at their next five-a-side meet-up, you will be awarded a similar luxury. The replica jersey possesses the latest 'AEROREADY – FEEL READY' technology, which will keep fans just as cool as their beloved heroes.

A statement of intent then - to make history in their new, history-inspired garment.
