The La Liga BBVA outfit excited fans today by releasing snaps of the shirt to be worn at the Estadio Vicente Calderon next season, which will feature a new sponsor Plus500 – replacing their controversial partnership with Azerbajan [The Guardian].

Atleti were unable to repeat domestic triumph last season – finishing third, 14 points off runners-up Real Madrid and 16 points adrift of winners Barcelona – but they have paid homage to their historic success on the new home kit.

Atletico Fans state that the shirt is a tribute to the 1995-96 double-winning side, as the start of next season will mark 20-years since the famous ‘Doblete’.

Just as it did 20 years ago, the 2015-16 shirt features five red stripes and a single blue stripe.

There could be perhaps be bad news for Chelsea, as top summer transfer target Antoine Griezmann [via the Express] has been included in the photoshoot for the unveiling of the kit.
