  • The home strip for the 2017/18 season sees blue return in a big way

This year marks Malaga's tenth consecutive campaign in the top flight and to celebrate the club has launched its latest kit.

The strip, which Míchel's side will wear for the upcoming 2017/18 campaign, has been designed by Nike, with whom the club has renewed its partnership for another five years.

Once more, the thick stripes return and this year the first-team kit features much more blue than previous editions, with dark blue sleeves, shorts and socks, to complement the light blue of the main body of the shirt.

The only white that is visible is on the stripes on the front and the name and number on the back.

Another new addition is that of the #10AñosDePrimera logo on the bottom right of the shirt.

MarathonBet continues as the main sponsor.

Betting company MarathonBet will continue as the main sponsor while Benahavís will remain on the rear. The club, however, has also secured sponsorship from Malaga sports technology company BeSoccer, whose name will appear on the left sleeve for the first time.

The new kit is available to buy on the club's website and at the official store at La Rosaleda stadium. From Tuesday morning, it will also be available at Malaga CF's other official outlets at the Larios, Vialia and Rincón de la Victoria shopping centres, in Malaga's historic centre, and in Fuengirola and Torre del Mar.

For collectors, a special limited edition shirt is also on sale, complete with a special crest and case.
