Real Madrid

I guess this is the year of purple.

Over the past few days both the reigning European champions, Real Madrid, and reigning Spanish champs, Barcelona, unveiled very similar jerseys.

The away kits were released within an hour of each other as both Real and Barca will wear purple next season.

Orlando City, you guys were ahead of the game…

Anyway, with Real’s kits manufactured by adidas and Barca’s by Nike, it is rather bizarre both have gone for the same colors in the same season.

That said, the results are pretty spectacular.

See photos of both new jerseys below ahead of the 2016-17 season. Which one do you like better?

Just like trophies and bragging rights, I guess this is just another thing Real Madrid and Barcelona will fight to the bitter end about.
