Real Madrid 22/23 home jersey – MODRIC’ 10

Real Madrid got back to its winning ways and conquered the league title thus they got to wear the small gold patch the following season. Later on they added to that by winning the FIFA world club championship thus gaining the right to wear the gold shield to the chest.

The title holder in La Liga gets to wear the small gold badge above the La Liga tournament patch.

The name and number printing was a plain black. Nothing fancy but a decent font to match the white and purple tones of the jersey.

Real Madrid 18/19 away jersey – KROOS 8

Cristiano Ronaldo left the Bernabeu over the summer of 2018 after having won a fourth Champions League trophy with Real Madrid. That left a huge gab behind and nobody came in to replace him. Thus season 18/19 will not be remembered as something to cherish for Real Madrid fans. However, most of the supporting cast which had played a crucial role in winning the many titles alongside with Cristiano Ronaldo were still in place. Thus it did not take long to calibrate the machine and get back to its winning ways. One of the important pieces all along, German star midfielder Toni Kroos.

The away jersey 18/19 was actually quite stylish. Black with grey contrast collar and sleeves, and white logos to the center. Thus the printing would obviously have to be white.

To the right arm sleeve Real Madrid would wear a La Liga sleeve badge for the matches in the Spanish La Liga. If wearing the jersey in the UCL the La Liga badge would be replaced by a UCL badge instead.

Real Madrid 11/12 home jersey – ÖZIL 10

Real Madrid introduced a white gold theme for the home kit for the season 2011/12. The club ended up winning the league title under Mourinho thus gold can be considered to have been the right choice.

This time around the club logo was in plastic. While the striped and the adidas logo were in embroidery / cloth.

The sponsor was the betting/bookmaking company bwin.

The name and number kit was faulty at the start of the season causing all kinds of problems. It was only rectified with a second round of production much later but caused innumerable problems at the time.

Mesut Özil was the playermaker at the Bernabeu for the championship season before he was shipped off the Arsenal.

Real Madrid 12/13 away jersey – KAKA’ 8

Kaka’ was bought as a Galactico to take Real Madrid to the top of world football. He arrived at the Bernabeu alongside with Ronaldo, Alonso, and Benzema during the summer of 2009. However, while the 3 others shone right from the beginning the time of Kaka was marred by injuries. Similarities to Hazard would often spring to mind. Kaka was great for São Paulo FC, did well for the Brazilian national team, and rose to the very top with AC Milan. Expectations were great but apart from the occasionally display of greatness Kaka’s stay at the Bernabeu will be remembered mainly for not living up the expectations.

The away jersey 2012/13 was pretty stylish though. Dark navy with neon contrast. The printing could have been neon as well but the club opted for white which could then be applied for the third kit as well.

Real Madrid is from the year 1902 thus in 2012 the club celebrated a 110th anniversary. Usually not a great anniversary but in the case of football clubs and shirt designers any kind of occasion is ceased to build a story and a design upon.

To the right arm sleeve the jersey is equipped with LFP sleeve badge.

The club logo is embroidered and not in plastic. A huge advantage since embroidery tends to age much better than plastic logos.

Real Madrid 20/21 home kit – NACHO 6

Full back Nacho got his break-through during the 20/21 season when all of a sudden Varane as well as Ramos were out. Nacho and Militão picked up the slack and from there on Nacho has an integral part of the squad as the versatile player who fills in where needed.

Real Madrid introduced a women’s team during the 20/21 season and thus the shirt design for both men’s and women’s team came with a feminine touch.

The font chosen for the 2020/21 season was a standard blue color strains of white being visible inside the navy blue framework.

The template for the jersey was a strange one very loose fitting and no strict trims to delimit shoulders over chest portion. An experiment which might have been successful on its own terms but probably not something to repeat.

Real Madrid 09/10 home jersey – ALONSO 22

Real Madrid returned to Galacticos back in 2009 when Florentino Perez came back to power for the Royal club in Madrid. He brought in Alonso, Kaka, Benzema, Ronaldo. Apart from Kaka who was haunted by injuries the others turned out to be very good value for money. Xabi Alonso from the Basque Country has more recently turned out to be a very skilled coach as well.

So this it the jersey worn with slightly other squad numbers than what would be the case later. Ronaldo at 9, Benzema at 11, Kaka at 8, and Alonso at 22.

At the time La Liga was still the LFP and thus the sleeve badge reflects this.

And finally the name and number kit in detail:

The official Real Madrid name and number kit 2009/10 was from Sporting ID.
