Review: Real Madrid away jersey 12-13

By Rafael Valverde, Queens, NYC, USA

After a historic record-breaking season that ended with winning the La Liga title, Real Madrid returns to defend that title on this, their 110th anniversary. Adidas faced pressure in designing a quality away shirt to commemorate the occasion; I feel they have delivered.


Real Madrid ude trøje 12-13




The official color-way of the 2012-2013 Real Madrid away shirt is Nobile-Ink/Electricity. Nobile-Ink is a purple hue that is reminiscent of navy in certain lighting. It is the same color used in the accents of the 2012-2013 Real Madrid Home shirt. Electricity is a bright neon green color that brings life to the shirt in small doses through the piping on the shoulder and the stitched Adidas logo on the right chest. The two colors combine for a superb contrast that captures attention. I feel that Nobile-Ink serves as a traditional Real Madrid color while Electricity brings modern excitement. I must admit that I was a bit skeptical when the initial pictures of the shirt were released. However, after seeing it on the field and live in person… It has become a favorite of mine.




The shirt material is 100% polyester pique. Adidas CLIMACOOL technology refers to the combination of open mesh, performance fabrics and strategically placed ventilation panels. Specialized ventilation panels are placed in areas such as under the arms and body sides to help whisk away sweat. The intention is to combat heat so that you remain dry, cool and comfortable even in the height of athletic competition. Raglan sleeves provide a flattering fit while still offering complete freedom to the arms. The neck opening is crewneck style with partially ribbed collar. I found the overall fit of the jersey to be “true-to-size.” If your intention is to be active in this shirt, you will be completely pleased with the performance.





The Real Madrid badge is beautifully stitched on the left chest. The crest embroidery is quality. The Adidas logo is stitched on the right chest.

Primary club sponsor, bwin is screened on the mid-chest of the shirt.


Vertical stripes are featured on the body of the shirt but can only be seen up close.


The LFP badge, (La Liga de Fútbol Profesional) is stitched on the right sleeve.

My personal favorite design detail of this shirt is the “110 anos” (110 years) logo on the left sleeve, which commemorates 110 years (1902-2012) of history for the club. It’s a significant and unique detail that will make this shirt feel special for years to come.

The official printing color is white and this does well to balance the shirt. Although white is often considered plain, the printing features subtle details to remain interesting. The Real Madrid logo is once again featured at the bottom of each number. Soft grey horizontal lines are present on each number and letter of printing. These details can be difficult to see from distance but are well appreciated up close. The numbers appear clean and sophisticated. Lastly, I really like the neat name font.

Adidas has done a fine job designing and producing the Real Madrid away shirt for the 12/13 season. The end product is a shirt that is well made and visually pleasing. The color contrast of the away jersey is beautiful, something that is much more appreciated in person. Classy details throughout the shirt and printing provide the finishing touch. Hala Madrid!


Of course, the 2012-2013 Adidas Real Madrid Away jersey and official Real Madrid player printing are now available at

Real Madrid home jersey 2012-13 review

By Julian Smith, Lisbon, Portugal.

What a year Madrid have had… Los Blancos were finally able to snatch the La Liga title from the recent dominance of Barcelona claiming the honor for the 32nd time, amassing an incredible 100 points and 121 goals (+89 GD). Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo had arguably his best year in Madrid, scoring 46 goals in La Liga and a blistering 60 goals in all competitions. While they crashed out of the Champions League on penalties, Fiorentino Perez, Mourinho, and co must be happy with their overall performance. Having completed a season in such style, it’s no surprise that their 2012-13 home kit is just as classy.

The Shirt

Real Madrid home jersey 12-13

The 2012-13 Real Madrid home kit returns to the clubs royal roots with a nice combination of dark purple with turquoise lining. The new style may seem a bit odd at first glance, but it definitely grows on you and looks fantastic when worn. As always, the kit is mostly white and sports the triple stripe (the Adidas trademark) along the shoulders and down the arm.

The material is nice and soft and feels fantastic to the touch (unlike Nike’s shirts before Euro 2012). Still the standard 100% polyester seen in most replica shirts these days, it is comparable to other Adidas shirts worn in recent years.


Real Madrid home jersey arm


*Note: Shirt being worn is a medium, wearer is 6’1” and 160 pounds (1.85m, 72.5 kg)

The neck and armholes are reinforced with a double lining of the same material and weigh the shirt down a bit to reinforce the structure of the shirt on the body. An important point to mention is this double lining actually gives the arms a more fitted wear, so if you extend your arm outward the sleeve will stay up, as seen in the above pictures. 


Real Madrid home jersey 12-13 collar


Adidas opted for the flat collar as opposed to last year’s protruding collar. The divergence allows for the cool royal accenting, and now you don’t have to worry about making sure the normally flimsy protruding collar is always in place when you’re wearing it.

The Clima Cool technology this year is incorporated in the vents placed under both arm pits.


Real Madrid garment


An interesting detail to note that is not so visible in pictures is the silver pinstripes running along the front of the shirt. The accent adds an extra bit of flair and, again, helps give the shirt a better structural look when worn.


The replica shirt features the standard embroidered La Liga logo on the right arm and the plastic “bwin” logo used since the 2007-08 seasons. Real Madrid and Adidas have made to huge improvements this year, though, which I would like to highlight.

Old Crest                                                                                          New Crest

A very disappointing aspect of last year’s shirt was the club crest. While the shirt itself looks great the plastic, almost fake, looking badge is kind of a bummer. This year, the badge is embroidered and stitched into the fabric, giving the shirt a much better and authentic look.


Real Madrid 110 anos logo


An addition to this year’s shirt is the “110 anos” (110 years) badge on the left arm. This neat detail commemorates the clubs 110th year as an official club since its original founding in 1902 as Madrid Football Club. Fun fact: the club only became Real Madrid (which translates to Royal Madrid) in 1920 when King Alfonso XIII dubbed them so and placed the crown on top of the club crest.



The official Real Madrid printing for the season 12/13.

Real Madrid printing 12-13

This year’s print style is probably one of my least favorite aspects of Madrid’s 2012-13 shirt. The two-tone number, in my opinion, doesn’t really fit so well with the rest of the shirts color palate, and the combination of the edged and curvy lines looks a bit awkward. 


RM printing close up


As seen in the above picture, the printing accent color and the shirt accent color are not the same. Perhaps if Adidas and Madrid had brightened the print accent color and not made it so prominent it would have looked better… 



Real Madrid home jersey 12-13 score


All in all, the shirt looks and feels great. Personalizing takes a bit away from the shirts stylishness, but that certainly won’t deter a true fan.

Why do you support your current favorite club?

I support Real Madrid because as a kid growing up in the United States I was never able to watch soccer and at the age of 10years old my first game I saw on TV was a Real Madrid game.  Ever since that game I have followed the club and would never route for another club in Spain.


 Which piece of advice would you offer your club if you were present at a board meeting?

–  As of right now I really don’t have much of anything to say except to find a way to stop Lionel Messi and Barcelona.


  What is the low point of the club while you have followed it?

-One of the lowest points of the club for me was when Real Madrid was sent out of the Champions league by Arsenal FC on February 27 2006.  Because I felt that they had the talent to take the Champions League title and fell short.



What is the high point?

– The high point for Real Madird during my time of following the club was when they won the Champions League in 2001-2002 against German side Bayern Leverkusen.




Which is/are your favorite jersey(s) from your club?

-2007 away jersey



 Real Madrid Champions League away jersey / 3rd jersey 2006-07



When you were a kid which player would you like to become? or who was your favorite player ?

-My favorite player as a kid was not a player for Real Madrid it was Dennis Bergkamp from Arsenal FC.  This was because       when I saw him play I saw how skilled and smooth of a player he was and just new if I played soccer I would model my game after him.



What is the greatest experience you had with your club – team?

-Unfortunately I haven’t been able to see my club play live.  But I hope to travel to Europe and watch them play one day.

The Real Madrid Training Jersey seems to be the best for last, again with its classic fit and sleek design. With its navy color and white light blue trimming works well and gives the jersey that classic feel. The training jersey has the Adidas climacool like the Jerseys. Loose fitting breathable material, players wearing the jersey will be comfortable during hard practices and yet stay cool due to the breathability of the fabric.  The team crest is centered just below the Adidas logo.  The reinforced stitching will withstand the stress of practices, while not being bulking and annoying.

The back of the training top shows a printing of Real Madrid, with light blue trimming on the shoulders with a white design.  The design is made to let your body breath as well as keep you looking stylish.

Review: Real Madrid Champions League Away Jersey

By the MM Sports Ambassador Sean Moran


The Real Madrid Champions League Away Jersey has a classic design with a fresh new look to it.  The climacool technology that this jersey has is not like others the feel of the fabric is thick yet it breaths very well.  Like many Adidas jerseys this jerseys breaths in the right areas for not only optimal cooling but at the same time it will keep the moisture off of you so you don’t have to worry about getting cold while training or just wearing it for leisure.  The climacool technology also focuses on certain areas of your body to have maximum ventilation for your body to be able to perform at it up most level.  The jersey the embossed team crest on the upper left chest, and the Adidas logo stitched on the right front chest. The front screen-prints features the team sponsor (bwin) who has consistently maintained sponsorship for Real Madrid over the last several years.

Also stitched on the right sleeve is the champion’s league soccer ball and on the left is the champion’s league trophy these league badges are very important to a jersey they tell you what league the jersey is worn in, it also can tell other people about what kind of fan you.


Real Madrid CL away jersey Star Ball Real Madrid CL away jersey badge of honours



On the back of the jersey is the name and number of player, as well as team crest at the bottom of the numbers.  The reason for me as a fan to get the players name on the jersey is to support you favorite players not only your team.  The jersey does not look complete without the players name and number on the back of the jersey. Price is not an issue for me because I won’t buy a jersey without a name of the player I like but I understand sometimes price can factor in for some.  Even if you buy the jersey to train instead of the training top you want the player on the back to show your support.  The reason I like to wear team jerseys when I train other than the training gear is because the jersey has more perks like the ventilation of the armpit areas, back, and abdomen.  Also the jerseys are made to be the best possible attire to train an get the most out of you without hindering your abilities due to the elements or even stiffness.

On the shoulder it has the classic Adidas look with tight arm bands at the end of the sleeves to give it a more fitted look, as well as venting under the arms.

The sizing of this jersey is true to size, while offering a form fitting style.  The fabric is thicker than most jerseys but very durable and comfortable.  The stitching on this jersey is all very tight and well done, the manufacturing of this jersey shows the effort that Adidas puts in their jerseys to fit it towards what athletes want and what can help them battle the elements and their own body. Also this jersey is very stylish with a great new red color that I have not seen in a Real Madrid jersey before.
