ATLÉTICO OTTAWA 2020 MACRON HOME JERSEY – THE BREAKDOWN
We Are Many, We Are One! Divided on the field, but united in our hearts, we celebrate our shared passion for soccer with this mantra on the back collar of all our kits.
Every jersey features the league’s mission “For Canadians, By Canadians” on the inside neck – an everyday reminder of why this league exists and to inspire our mission to grow the beautiful game of soccer in Canada.
The new icon of the Italian brand, the Macron Hero characterizes and identifies the technical garments. The logo features the human body and takes inspiration from the tip of the spear, by definition a representation of dynamos and speed. The Macron Hero symbolizes even more effectively the joy at the end of the challenge, the achievement of a target, fatigue, passion and determination and epitomizes the Macron philosophy: “Work hard. Play harder”.
Atlético Ottawa’s Macron home jersey maintains the primary look of their parent company, Atlético Madrid who have been playing in red and white stripes since 1911. The stripes continue onto the sleeves, while the back is predominantly red. Inspired by the deep blue water of Ottawa’s Rideau Canal, Rideau blue complements the jersey’s classic collar, sleeve cuffs and sponsor logo. The Atlético emblem is a focal point highlighting the club’s national pride with structures synonymous with Ottawa and that Canadians would consider “emblematic” of our nation.
A bold red maple leaf, a recognized icon of Canada is showcased on the back of the jersey and is symbolic with Atlético’s entry into Canadian football. As a new member of the “red and white family,” Atlético Ottawa inherits a 100 plus year club philosophy with an emphasis on hard-work, courage and a “never-give-up” attitude. The club believes that these values will be very identifiable with the hard-working people of the Ottawa-Gatineau region.
