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.
