These are the new Athletic Bilbao shirts 2017/18, Athletic Club’s new home, away and third kits for the 17/18 La Liga season. The first to be made for the club by new kit partner New Balance, the Bilbao tops were officially unveiled on 3 July, 2017.
New Balance replace Nike, who began outfitting Athletic back in 2013. NB’s deal, till the end of the 2022/23 season, is reportedly worth 3.5 million euros per season.
The home kit retains the club’s traditional red and white colours, with the away being a black. The third, a blue and white creation from the NB stable, is a nod to the team that won Athletic’s first Copa title back in 1903.
Athletic finished 7th in the 2016/17 La Liga season, doing just enough to secure a spot in the Europa League for 2017/18.
