Real Madrid has joined forces with adidas and Marvel to launch a limited edition Marvel's Avengers line for Los Blancos' football and basketball teams. The new clothing collection references many Marvel Universe superheroes including Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Thor and Black Panther.
One of the first players to try it on was Fabien Causeur, who was part of the promotional photoshoot along with his teammates Sergio Llull, Walter Tavares, Anthony Randolph and Guerschon Yabusele, football stars Toni Kroos and Marcos Asensio, and women's football first-team players Ivana Andres and Teresa Abelleira.
"It's pretty cool. I am very excited. I'm such a geek about all these licenses. I love Marvel, I have followed them and have the physical copies at home. So I would say I'm a pretty big fan," Causeur said.
Real's basketball team will wear Marvel's Avengers-themed uniforms in two official games: in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague showdown against EA7 Emporio Armani Milan and in the Spanish League game against Carplus Fuenlabrada. They will also wear Marvel's Avengers clothing in training sessions. Both football squads, men's and women's, will wear a Captain America t-shirt in pre-game warmups and an Avengers hoodie before heading onto the pitch.
"It's really nice that Real Madrid, adidas and Marvel are working together. Like I said, I'm pretty excited, like a kid. It is going to be a special game, I would say, there are going to be nice pictures for social media," Causeur said. "It's a collectible jersey. I'm going to keep it and probably put it on the wall when I retire because it's going to be a good memory. Hopefully, we will win that game so it gets better!"
This is adidas's first clothing collection with a shared theme for all sections of the club. Previously, adidas, Real and Star Wars launched a clothing line for the basketball team in May 2021.
The entire Marvel's Avengers collection is on sale now at adidas.com and at official Real Madrid stores.
