Malaga release new kit which 'breaks all the rules'

  • The club's traditional blue and white stripes have been replaced by much thinner blue lines in the shape of an 'm'

Malaga CF brought an end to a long wait for fans on Monday evening, finally releasing their kits for the 2020-21 season.

There were many surprises, most notably with the traditional blue and white stripes being replaced by thinner lines in the shape of a zig-zag or thurderbolt on first viewing, but in fact in the shape of an 'm' for 'Malaga', according to the designers who say they have "broken all the rules".

In what the club describes as an "innovative, groundbreaking and unusual" new home strip, produced by Nike, white is much more prominent on the shirt, while the blue on the sleeves, shorts and socks is much lighter than in previous seasons.

Door and kitchen manufacturer Tesesa remains the main sponsor on the front of the shirt, while bed and mattress company Mi Colchón has been added vertically down the left-hand side. On the sleeves appears the name of bookmakers William Hill, Benahavís town hall appears on the rear of the shirt, while the logos of sports website Be Soccer and the Malaga-Costa del Sol tourist board appear on the shorts.

The home goalkeeper kit meanwhile is all grey, while the away kit sees the return of the dark purple and green which forms the provincial flag.

Similar to the home shirt, the green appears in an 'm' pattern, albeit much thicker.

The third kit, by contrast, is all yellow.

The presentation of the kits took place at the top of the Alcazaba in the city and was attended by representatives from the city hall, the provincial and regional government.
