This is the new Athletic Bilbao kit 18/19, Athletic Club’s new home strip for the upcoming La Liga season. Made by New Balance, the new kit celebrates the club’s 120th anniversary (it was founded in 1898) and was officially unveiled on May 23, 2018. Athletic are the only major La Liga team to wear NB after Sevilla ended their deal with the Boston manufacturer and switched to Nike.
Athletic had a very disappointing 17/18 league season, finishing just outside the bottom three, in 16th place with just 43 points to show for their efforts.
The shirt, sponsored by Kutxabank, uses the tagline “Loyal to the Last” and has a black collar. It will be paired with black shorts and socks. It also features the Ikurrina (Basque flag) on the back.
