Atletico Madrid have instantly recognisable shirts, but in 2003-2004 Season, Atletico Madrid had one of the weirdest football shirts in world football.
The Spanish club signed a sponsorship deal with Hollywood Movie company Columbia pictures, this allowed them to change their sponsor every time a new motion picture came out and they really did have some strange sponsors.

Atletico Madrid had a wide range of movies on show such as, Spider-man, Hell-boy, Resident Evil, Peter Pan, The Terminator, Hitch and the famously bad film Spanglish. Fernando Torres and Diego Simeone did not look right in the shirts.
One unique part of this sponsorship deal was Nike and Atletico Madrid created a unique Spiderman Kit for the release of the movie. The kit was worn by the club in an official match and is still one of the weirdest kits in football.
Here's a rundown of the films they promoted. For me the hands down winner is Bad Boys 2 and Hell Boy. Most of the films had branded sponsorship but bizzarely Closer, Gothika and Big Fish all just used a plain font.
Between 2003 and 2005, Columbia Pictures sponsored Atletico Madrid, with the agreement that their shirt sponsor would change with each big release 🎬
The release of Southampton's 2023 home shirt was more than 2 years in the making. Since the announcement of the club's return to hummel in 2021, a remake of The Saints iconic 1987-1989 home was on the cards.
