According to its official website: The adidas Real Madrid Third Shirt reaches back to a memorable European Cup moment for its inspiration. Its commemorative neck tape and striking allover red colour is drawn from a kit worn by the “Heroes of Odessa” during the 1973 tournament. The football jersey’s ventilated CLIMACOOL® design manages heat and moisture for improved performance.

Real Madrid legends Zoco, Pirri and Amancio wore Real Madrid’s previous red kit in the early 1970s. The three former players shared that experience with us.
“We were surprised by having to wear a red shirt in Cardiff. So were our supporters. We usually had two kits: white or purple/blue. It was a good experience wearing that shirt. Today’s shirt is no different from the one we wore; It has the same crest and the players who wear it also give their all.”
“It’s good for the team to play in Zagreb now because the weather isn’t as aggressive as it will be later in the year. When we played in that part of Europe we faced a hostile atmosphere and a very dark pitch. The crowds fervently support their sides. Our boys know how important it is to have a good start to the season. I’m sure they’ll take three points.”
“I have a lot of faith in Jose Mourinho. He has made the team tighter. All of us Madridistas should be happy with him.”
“Wearing red was quite sensational, especially in Odessa, where our goalkeeper Garcia Remon cleared every single shot.”
“You know, the only difference between this shirt and ours is the texture. Ours was made of cotton and increased its weight with sweat. The crest is the same and that’s why we’ll always like any Real Madrid shirt.”
“I very much liked Jose Mourinho’s first year at Real Madrid. He is a great coach and I generally defend him because he goes in for the kill.”
“When I saw the red shirt upon entering the dressing room I felt much younger because I had just played three years with Osasuna. I ran to it to check it had the Real Madrid crest. I had my picture taken as team captain with Garcia Remon, the hero of the match. We dubbed him the Odessa Cat that day.”
“We rather enjoyed watching the team last season and it will be even better this year. The team is in better shape to win its tenth European Cup title.”
