Philosophy of the New Team Jersey: "This is not just another jersey."
PROFILE: "It's our passion that we wear to the field.
The open wings that emerge from its chest manifest the immensity of our inner drive.
The vast spread of those wings from the core to the shoulders bears testimony to our relentless desire to fly high.
This is no ordinary uniform.
This is the force of a million unified.
The bold red stripes wrapping its body bring alive the fire burning bright within our ignited soul.
This isn't a random number on a fabric.
This is what our fans see us in. Know us as.
The calming blues and the pristine white on its frame give the world a glimpse of our purity of purpose.
To the world, it may be just a jersey from outside.
To us, it's who we are, from the inside."
José Molina, Head Coach, Atlético de Kolkata said: "Riding on the success of two seasons, this year also the team will gear up for the third edition of the Indian Super League with a month long training camp in Spain.
