Atlanta presented yesterday its new home and away kits for the upcoming 2014- 2015 season.
The setting for the presentation of the new uniform’s was on known Atlanta fan Sebastián Wainraich’s show, Metro y Medio, on FM Metro 95.1mhz. At half past eight in the evening, the presentation of the new shirt took place with the presence in the studio of skipper Emanuel Francés, goalkeeper Pablo Santillo, assistant manager José Luis Calderón and Manager Rubén Capria. Also directives Darío Diament and Marcelo Santoro were present at the time.
Wainraich, member of the board but also a known public figure took the place in his evening radio show to present the shirt in an amicable ambience were there were jokes and the shirts were introduced to the audience via the internet.
The new kits, now manufactured by brand OhCan Sport instead of Athix (who made the kits for the previous season for Atlanta), were for the first time presented at Metro y Medio with the intention of explaining the motif behind the new kits: to remember, evocate, the succesful campaigns back in the seventies the club had (The alternative shirt for example, is the same one used in the 1973 campaign by Atlanta) and to make a mark of the upcoming 110 aniversary of the club upcoming October 12th.
As for sponsors the outlook is as usual: La Nueva Seguros will be the main sponsor in the front and back of the shirt (with an abbreviated version of the logo, a bit more kit-friendly, on the front), as well as amamosviajar, tio musa goods, and cerveza palermo as the sponsors. The only new sponsor for this season is hidrotecnica.
The new home kit remains, though, a question mark as some of the fans do not agree with changing their usual multi-striped shirt into a one-stripe yellow and blue shirt. It evoques the shirt used by Atlanta in 1950 as well, like the alternative kit.
