Special 2023-24 Atletico Madrid Kit Vrs Celtic

The kit pays tribute to that worn back in the 1973-74 season when Atletico Madrid faced Celtic in the European Cup semi final, getting a 0-0 draw at Celtic Park.

Two weeks later Atletico Madrid beat Celtic 2-0 at the Vicente Calderón to reach the 1973-74 European Cup Final.

Atletico Madrid President, Enrique Cerezo said, “This Wednesday we meet again with a historic club in a mythical stadium, such as Celtic Park, where we will have the honor of reliving a duel that half a century later continues to remain in the memory of all athletics.”

For all the players who played that match, and that great European Cup, it is a huge recognition that fifty seasons later, the team will wear the same uniform again in Celtic Park. It fills us with pride now as it filled us with pride then, not only for defending Atlético de Madrid, but also because for people like Reina, Melo, Irureta, Gárate and myself, it was to wear the same colors that we defended with the Spanish national team. That semifinal was very special, we came from winning the League the previous season and we eliminated a whole European champion at a very good time in our careers.”

The special retro Atletico Madrid 1973-74 commemorative shirt is predominantly red with a white Nike logo and shirt sponsor.

On the left breast is the Atletico Madrid badge.

Blue shorts with red socks will complete the kit.
